Law360, New York (May 31, 2006, 12:00 AM EDT) -- There may be a glimmer of hope for transportation company Stolt-Neilsen in its fight against a decision that exempted it from the Department of Justice’s amnesty program. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has asked for the DOJ’s opinion in the matter, signifying that the court will carefully consider Stolt’s petition for rehearing.
In its original ruling, the Third Circuit said that federal courts have the authority to enjoin federal prosecutions only in First Amendment cases.
