US court dismisses Cheney appeal on energy papers
A federal appeals court Tuesday dismissed an appeal by lawyers for Vice President Dick Cheney concerning a lawsuit seeking White House energy policy papers.
By a 2-1 vote, the appeals court panel dismissed the appeal on technical grounds, ruling the challenge was brought too soon and can be considered later after a final judgment has been entered by the judge presiding over the case.
The lawsuit seeking the energy policy papers was brought by the private watchdog group Judicial Watch and environmental group Sierra Club.
