‘ Court Appears Ready to End Special Master Review ‘

“ A federal appeals court panel signaled on Tuesday that it is likely to end a review of a trove of government documents seized this summer from former President Donald J. Trump, a move that would greatly free up an investigation into his handling of the material.

At a 40-minute hearing in Atlanta, the three-member panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit seemed to embrace the Justice Department’s position that a federal judge had acted improperly two months ago when she ordered an independent arbiter to review the documents taken from Mr. Trump’s Florida compound, Mar-a- Lago.

Through their questions, the panel expressed concern that Judge Aileen M. Cannon, who appointed the so-called special master, had acted without precedent by ordering a review of the seized material. The panel also suggested that Judge Cannon, who was appointed by Mr. Trump, had overstepped by inserting herself into the case and trying to bar the government from using the records in its investigation into whether Mr. Trump had illegally kept national security records at Mar-a-Lago and obstructed the government’s repeated efforts to retrieve them. “

The decision of the three-judge panel will be appealed, then the full court decision will be appealed to SCOTUS. It will likely take a pass and the review will end. But that could take months and by then the master will be done.

This whole 'special master' thing sounds juvenile, like the 'secret double probation' on Animal house.

Not a good look for a junior member of the federal judiciary, Justice [Loose] Cannon.

It should be noted that all three judges are Republican appointees, two by Trump himself.

Does the appeals court have the power to remove her from anything to do with this? If so, I hope they do. And I hope she at least gets an official reprimand.

goodone It's clear that the Federalist Society was giving Trump people to put on federal courts (including the Supreme Court) that passed right wing ideological purity tests and actual capacity to be a judge with awesome responsibility to fairly apply the facts to the law were a secondary - if even that - concern. Ideology over justice.

They do not.

I believe the superior judge of her district can reassign her, but generally, it is expected that a judge will take the message and act accordingly. Whether that will occur here is still to be seen. However I do not see that this is being sent back to her for reconsideration, so she is out of the decision loop in any case.

I think the appeals courts usually send orders back to the district court instructing the lower court what to do. It keeps continuity for the entirety of a case before the same court. The appellate court just ruled on a particular aspect of the case.
