United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit.

James A. Widtfeldt, Appellant v. United States Tax Court, Appellee

No. 16-1106

Decided: August 15, 2017

BEFORE: Pillard and Wilkins, Circuit Judges, and Ginsburg, Senior Circuit Judge

ORDER

Upon consideration of appellant's response to the order to show cause why the U.S. Tax Court's order suspending him from the practice of law before that court should not be summarily affirmed; appellant's response to this court's order returning the case to the court's active docket after the court's decision in Aka v. U.S. Tax Court, No. 15-1401; appellant's May 30, 2017 pleading construed as a (second) motion for summary reversal; and appellee's motion to reinstate show cause order, it is

ORDERED that the motion for summary reversal be denied, and that the U.S. Tax Court's February 19, 2016 order suspending appellant from the practice of law before that court be summarily affirmed. Appellant has failed to identify any error in the Tax Court's decision. As a result, the appropriate disposition is so clear as to warrant summary action. See Aka v. U.S. Tax Court, 854 F.3d 30 (D.C. Cir. 2017) (this court has jurisdiction to review the Tax Court's disbarment orders); Taxpayers Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam).

Pursuant to D.C. Circuit Rule 36, this disposition will not be published. The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after resolution of any timely petition for rehearing or petition for rehearing en banc. See Fed. R. App. P. 41(b); D.C. Cir. Rule 41.

FOR THE COURT:
