The new sixth edition reflects important legal developments since publication of the 2016 supplement, such as:

  • A U.S. Supreme Court opinion deciding if limiting the length of any extension to the later of 30 days from the due date of the notice of appeal or 14 days from the date of entry of the order granting a motion for extension of time is a nonjurisdictional claim-processing rule that can be forfeited or waived
  • A Seventh Circuit case adopting a new rule for challenges to the imposition of various supervised release and probation conditions
  • A U.S. Supreme Court decision addressing challenges to restitution orders
  • A new section on the standard of review of arbitration awards
  • A Seventh Circuit decision on whether to impose sanctions against counsel personally for vexatiously multiplying proceedings because counsel decided to file the case in state court

New supplement

The 2018–2019 supplement includes a number of legal developments, including the following:

  • The rescinding of 7th Cir. R. 11 and the current rule dealing with extension requests, as well as a new policy regarding requesting videorecording of an argument
  • Updated discussion of the timing of oral arguments
  • Certification of a question by the Seventh Circuit to the Wisconsin Supreme Court
  • Completely updated, revised, and replaced chapters 6 (Direct Criminal Appeals) and 7 (Habeas Corpus:  Conflict Between State and Federal Courts)
  • A 2019 U.S. Supreme Court decision resolving a conflict among the circuits regarding whether a defense attorney is per se ineffective for failing to file a notice of appeal at the client’s request when the client has signed an appeal waiver
