United States: Haug Partners Attorney Jonathan Herstoff Presents Argument Before The Supreme Court
Last Updated: October 18 2017

On October 10, 2017, Jonathan A. Herstoff presented argument to the United States Supreme Court in Hamer v. Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago, No. 16-658 (U.S.). The case involves the question of whether the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit had jurisdiction over an appeal that was filed in compliance with statute and a district court's order, but outside the time provided in the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. More specifically, the case presents the question of whether the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure can affect the jurisdiction of a court of appeals and, if not, whether an appellee's conduct or an appellant's good-faith reliance on a district court's extension of time can excuse any noncompliance with the Rules and require that an appeal be decided on the merits. We took this case pro bono to represent Ms. Charmaine Hamer. A decision from the Court is expected by the end of June 2018.
