Extraordinary Writs, Interlocutory Appeals, Emergency Proceedings: What Every Appellate Practitioner Should Know

  • 11 May 2022
  • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Warren E. Burger Federal Courthouse - First Floor Jury Assembly Room - St. Paul (virtual participation also available)


“The Supreme Court and all courts established by Act of Congress may issue all writs necessary or appropriate in aid of their respective jurisdictions and agreeable to the usages and principles of law.” 28 U.S.C. § 1651. The Court of Appeals also may review certain “interlocutory” orders not otherwise appealable as “final orders.” 28 U.S.C. § 1292(b). And the Court of Appeals has the jurisdiction to review decisions involving injunctive relief, which by their nature may require immediate consideration. 28 U.S.C. § 1292(b). Although parties may find themselves in a position to avail themselves of these mechanisms, each is challenging to navigate even for the most erudite practitioner.

Join the Eighth Circuit Bar Association on Wednesday, May 11, at 4:00 PM in the Jury Assembly Room of the St. Paul Federal Courthouse for an engaging and educational panel that will discuss useful insights and real world examples on extraordinary writs, interlocutory appeals, and emergency proceedings:

  • Lisa Kirkpatrick, U.S. Department of Justice (moderator)
  • The Hon. Michael Melloy, U.S. Circuit Judge
  • Liz Kramer, Solicitor General of Minnesota
  • Michelle Kuhl, Lommen Abdo

This will be an in-person event with a reception to follow. Remote participation is available. The event is free to members of the Eighth Circuit Bar Association, as well as Eighth Circuit judges, staff, and judicial law clerks.
