ACCG to appeal Baltimore case dismissal

Board Authorizes Baltimore Appeal
By Wayne G. Sayles

On August 23, 2011 the ACCG Board of Directors voted in favor of a proposal that authorizes an appeal of the decision rendered in Baltimore by District Court Judge Catherine C. Blake on August 8. The initial motions in the case led to oral arguments on the government's motion to dismiss. Judge Blake subsequently granted that motion for dismissal in a 52-page opinion. ACCG is represented in the case by attorneys Peter Tompa and Jason Ehrenberg of the Washington DC firm Bailey & Ehrenberg.


As reported earlier, the case was essentially dismissed on a technicality. The grounds for appeal distill down to the argument that the ACCG is entitled to have the case tried on its merits, specifically the issues of first discovery and ultra vires review.
