Late. Bad news for the defendant in Napoli v. City of Windsor. A motion for summary judgment on qualified immunity was denied on January 12, 2009. On May 14, 2009, an order was issued clarifying the January 12, 2009. On June 9, 2009, the defendant filed a notice of appeal. Too late! Because the May 14, 2009 order did not relate to qualified immunity issue, it did not restart the time to appeal. The Second Circuit dismissed the appeal for lack of appellate jurisdiction.

The decision in the case can be found here.
