ALS MEMBER UPDATE: JANUARY 2, 2003:

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT APPEALS ALS VICTORY IN STARK II CASE

The American Lithotripsy Society has received an order from the United States Court for the District of Columbia Circuit establishing the schedules for submission of briefs in the government's appeal of ALS v. Thompson. The government must submit its brief by Monday, January 6, 2003. The appendix is also due on that date. The appendix is a compellation of certain key documents. ALS must submit our brief by Wednesday, February 5, 2003. The government must submit its reply brief by Wednesday, February 19, 2003. It is likely that oral argument will be scheduled on a date several months after the reply brief is due.
