Acting Solicitor General for DOJ granted Extension by the U.S. Supreme Court in Rothe Development Corp., Inc. v. DOD and the SBA

By: Christine V. Williams on 05/11/2017

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court gave an extension to the Acting Solicitor General for the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) on the case entitled Rothe Development, Inc. v. Department of Justice and the SBA.  Originally, the DOJ’s response/opposition to Rothe’s Petitioner for Certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court (“Petition”) was due on May 17, 2017.  The extension now gives DOJ until June 16, 2017, to file a response to the Petition.  Rothe is challenging the facial Constitutional validity of the SBA’s 8(a) Program.  Rothe lost in the trial court, the D.C. Cir. Court of Appeals, and is now attempting to get the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case with its Petition.  Here is a link to the U.S. Supreme Court’s docket for this case.
