Matthew Richard Palmieri, Appellant v. United States of America, et al., Appellees
Upon consideration of the motion for summary affirmance and the response thereto, it is
ORDERED that the motion for summary affirmance be denied. The merits of the parties' positions are not so clear as to warrant summary action. See Taxpayers Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam). It is
FURTHER ORDERED that
Thomas Vernon Burch
University of Georgia School of Law
225 Herty Drive
Athens, GA 30602
a member of the Bar of this court, be appointed as amicus curiae to present arguments in favor of appellant's position.
Because the court has determined that summary disposition is not in order, the Clerk is instructed to calendar this case for presentation to a merits panel.
