United States Supreme Court

Hamer v. Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago, 16-658

Vacating and remanding a case in which the Court of Appeals held that it lacked jurisdiction over a tardy appeal because it had misinterpreted the Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure, Rule 4(a)(5)(C) as a jurisdictional time proscription when it is, in fact, a court-made mandatory claim-processing rule that may be waived or forfeited.
