BOX 19-477 United States Court of Appeals: Case File, 1994-2014
The United States Court of Appeals: Case File, documenting Tatel’s judicial service from the 1994 to the 2013 terms, reflects the variety of issues heard by the Court including civil rights, federalism, environmental law, civil liberties, national security, and regulatory and labor law. The Case File is arranged by court term from September through June of each year and therein by two types of cases: argued cases and miscellaneous cases. Argued cases are those heard in oral argument by three judge panels or the full court. The argued cases comprise the largest portion of the case files. Occasionally a case scheduled for oral argument was decided without a panel hearing, and these cases remain as they were filed by Tatel’s staff according to their proposed argument date. Miscellaneous cases are appeals matters that were decided without oral argument.

Issues covered in substantive cases in which Tatel participated include network neutrality of the Internet (Verizon v. Federal Communications Commission), implementation of the Clean Air Act by the Environmental Protection Agency (American Trucking Associations v. the Environmental Protection Agency and Coalition for Responsible Regulation v. the Environmental Protection Agency), access obstruction by protestors to abortion clinics (Terry v. Reno), restriction of unaccompanied minors by curfew (Hutchins v. District of Columbia) and racial discrimination in voting (Shelby County v. Holder and Northwest Austin Municipal Utility District 1 v. Mukasey, the latter an opinion written by Tatel as a member of a panel for the federal district court for the District Court of Columbia).

The Court of Appeals Case File also documents the Court’s role as the principle court interpreting the legal rights of non-citizens and United States citizens suspected of terrorism held overseas by the federal government. Cases include those of Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, detainees challenging their imprisonment and confinement conditions (Latif v. Obama and Aamer v. Obama) and the authority of American courts to hear habeas claims by American citizens held out of the country by the military for alleged crimes (Omar v. Harvey). The miscellaneous cases for the 2006 term contain a number of files for a group of Guantánamo Bay special panel matters.

Material types include correspondence, memoranda, notes, orders, briefs, opinions, vote sheets, newspaper clippings, and background material relating to cases in which Tatel participated as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Some content of case files, including select exhibits, memoranda, draft opinions, notes and depositions, is in digital format as word-processed documents and moving image files.
Arranged by court term and therein alphabetically by type of case: argued cases and miscellaneous cases. The argued cases are further arranged by the date the case was heard by the court and therein by case number. Miscellaneous cases are arranged by case number or alphabetically by case title if there is no case number. The file structure of the digital content maintained as received.
