Did the government file for an appeal to supreme court?
I do not believe so. I checked the De Osorio 9th Circuit decision came out on September 26, 2012 I recall. If the Office of Immigration Litigation OIL) wanted to challenge the case, they have to file a Writ of Certiorari with the U.S. Supremen Court or if not the entire 9th Circuit court opined on the decision, they can ask for a hearing en banc (the entire court) The Supreme Court does not have to accept their request for a review (Certiorari). I don't recall reading anything to that affect but perhaps others on this site now better. Attorney Carl Shusterman who is also on this site represented one of the plaintiff's in that case.
I agree with Mr. Calehr ... Mr. Shusterman is 'the man' to talk to.
