2 1 NONPRECEDENTIAL DISPOSITION To be cited only in accordance with Fed. R. App. P. 32.1 United States Court of Appeals For the Seventh Circuit Chicago, Illinois 60604 Submitted December 3, 2013 Decided December 3, 2013 Before WILLIAM J. BAUER, Circuit Judge FRANK H. EASTERBROOK, Circuit Judge MICHAEL S. KANNE, Circuit Judge No. 13-2825 Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. QUINCY M. NERI, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. SENTINEL INSURANCE COMPANY LIMITED and ERIC FERGUSON, doing business as White School Studios, No. 13-cv-382-bbc Barbara B. Crabb, Judge. Defendants-Appellees. Order The  district  court  dismissed  this  suit  as  barred  by  an  earlier  judgment,  which  has   since  been  vacated.  Neri  v.  Monroe,  726  F.3d  989  (7th  Cir.  2013).  The  judge  has  stated  that   she  will  proceed  to  the  merits  as  soon  as  this  court  resolves  the  appeal  and  restores   jurisdiction  to  the  district  court.  That  is  a  sensible  approach.  Appellant  asks  us  to  direct   This successive appeal has been submitted to the original panel under Operating Procedure 6(b). After examining the briefs and the record, we have concluded that oral argument is unnecessary. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); Cir. R. 34(f). No. 13-2825 Page 2 the  district  court  to  enter  judgment  in  her  favor  immediately,  but  that  would  be   inappropriate.  As  our  published  opinion  observes,  defenses  such  as  fair  use  must  be   evaluated.       The  judgment  is  vacated,  and  the  case  is  remanded  for  further  proceedings.  The   mandate  will  issue  today.
