Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 948 F.2d 782 (D.C. Cir. 1991) Oct. 22, 1991

Before HARRY T. EDWARDS, SILBERMAN and STEPHEN F. WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.

ORDER

PER CURIAM.


Upon consideration of appellee's motion for summary affirmance, the response thereto and the reply, and appellant's motion for summary reversal and the response thereto, it is

ORDERED that the motion for summary reversal be denied. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the motion for summary affirmance be granted for the reasons stated by the district court in its memorandum decision and order filed October 30, 1990. The merits of the parties' positions are so clear as to justify summary action. See Taxpayer Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987); Walker v. Washington, 627 F.2d 541, 545 (D.C. Cir.) (per curiam), cert. denied, 449 U.S. 994 (1980).

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
