Federal Appellate jurisdiction case
No, wrong FAA...
Does the FAA (that's the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., not the airplane guys) provide the 9th Circuit with jurisdiction to hear an
interlocutory appeal from a district court’s case management
order? Today's opinion here says 'nope.'
Ok, well, how about a writ then? No dice (but with a dissent).
In other 9th Circuit news, two N.D.Cal. BK judges have been appointed to the BAP. Details here.
