Justice Department Appeals ACORN Ruling

Some weeks ago the U.S. Department of Justice filed an appeal of U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon’s (absurd) ruling on ACORN funding.

Gershon issued a permanent injunction against the U.S. government forbidding it from defunding ACORN. She held that the cutoff of funding to ACORN constituted an unconstitutional bill of attainder.

I had searched without success for weeks online to find the appeal documents.

I asked the DOJ to provide the documents today and the department promptly complied.

Here is the Notice of Appeal and here is the Motion for Stay Pending Appeal.
