U.S. v. Auernheimer, No. 13-1816, requesting permission to exceed the normal word limit for an opposition brief on appeal. The normal limit for an opposition brief is 14,000 words. The motion states that “[t]he [appellant’s] brief raises serious substantive challenges to the Government’s prosecution of Mr. Auernheimer, and several of the legal issues raised are questions of first impression in this Circuit.” The motion also notes that four amicus briefs on behalf of appellant Andrew Auernheimer (weev) were filed. Therefore, the government argues, they should be permitted to file a brief containing 26,500 words and the briefing schedule should be stayed until the Court decides the motion. Here’s the motion: US Mot for Word Extension 8.6.13 (TE)]]]]> ]]>
