Oops, no joy on this one

In Casteel v. Davidson, the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam decision by the panel including Judges Michael, Traxler, and Duncan, affirmed summarily the opinion of the District Court, without hearing oral argument.

Since we were the ones hired to bring the appeal, I was hoping for a different outcome.

Local litigators Roy Jessee and Bill Moffet were up in Richmond earlier this week, arguing before a panel of Judge Motz, Judge Shedd, and Senior Judge Hamilton. I must remember to inquire about that when next I see those gentlemen.
