(No. 06-0416, which reportedly had been set for oral argument with the mandamus petition next Thursday.

UPDATE: The Court’s spokesman, Osler McCarthy, has confirmed that reports of a hearing on the Columbia motion were mere rumors.  Accordingly, I have taken down today’s earlier post on that subject.  Ugh![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
