If there is a single watchword for the Eleventh Circuit's decisions in 2007 in the arena of appellate practice and procedure, it is "jurisdiction." The requirement of a "final decision" received particular attention, as did the requirements for perfection of certain interlocutory appeals. The Eleventh Circuit also recognized an additional limitation on its jurisdiction over remand orders in removal cases. Accordingly, the first section of this Article will discuss cases that addressed questions of the Eleventh Circuit's appellate jurisdiction, followed by a section describing two notable cases that addressed the preservation and presentation of error. The final section discusses an interesting new chapter, revealed by recent cases, in the story of the Eleventh Circuit's application of the "prior panel precedent" rule.
