The second link is the order from the DC Circuit to Judge Sullivan commanding him to reply to the Petition for a Writ of Mandamus.
The DC Circuit, on its own motion, commanded Judge Sullivan to reply to the Petition for a Writ of Mandamus within 10 days.
It helps that Flynn got a favorable draw of Judges for his panel.
United States Circuit Judges Karen L. Henderson, Robert Wilkins and Neomi Rao are on the panel.
I fully expect them to grant the Petition for a Writ of Mandamus and send down a Writ of Mandamus to Judge Sullivan commanding him to dismiss the case with prejudice.
