Eighth Circuit Newsletter: Intra-Circuit Splits, the Twenty-First Amendment, and Judge Jane Kelly

By: Administrator on June 27th, 2013

The Eighth Circuit Bar Association’s summer newsletter is out, and  it contains two articles by Nyemaster Goode attorney and On Brief contributor Ryan Koopmans. The first article discusses the Eighth Circuit’s conflicting, same-day decisions in United States v. Bruguier and United States v. Rouillard.  (Our earlier coverage of those decisions is here and here.)

The second article analyzes a pending Eighth Circuit case that will decide the meaning of the Twenty-first Amendment.  (Yeah, the one that says we can drink booze.)  The three-judge panel includes two Iowans: Judge Steven Colloton and Judge Stephanie Rose, a newly confirmed district court judge who is sitting on the Eighth Circuit by designation.

The newsletter, which is edited by Briggs & Morgan attorney Scott Flaherty, also contains a profile of our newest Eighth Circuit judge, Jane Kelly (who also hails from Iowa). Read the the whole thing here.
