Ooooh, technical. In Local Union 36, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, AFL-CIO v. NLRB, the Second Circuit dealt with a technical issue. The NLRB sought to have the case transferred to the DC Circuit because it had not been served with a copy of the petition for review stamped by the court with the date of filing, as required by statute. Because of this defect, the NLRB asserted that the appeal should be heard where the case had been instituted, i.e., in the DC Circuit. The petitioner had, however, served it with the petition for review, accompanied by the e-mail bearing the date and time of filing. The Second Circuit held that this was sufficient compliance with the statute and denied the NLRB's motion.

The decision in this case can be found here.
