WRIT OF MANDUMBASS TO THE WASHINGTON POST (originally posted 3/5/01)

Mandumbass is an extraordinary writ issued periodically by the Fourteenth Circuit to news outlets that report denials of certiorari as if they were affirmances on the merits. Today's writ is issued to the Washington Post for its article, "Klan's Right to Participate in Mo. Program Upheld." That article "informs" its readers that "[i]n a separate decision today, the [C]ourt allowed the federal government to enforce" certain air pollution regulations. "The [C]ourt, without comment, turned down arguments by seven [S]tates and a number of power companies that the rules were improperly set by the Environmental Protection Agency."

The writ shall issue forthwith.
