1. Before June 22, 2021: AAA files its opposition to the DOS's motion to dismiss
2. August/September 2021: DOS files its reply to AAA's opposition.
3. November 2021-February 2022: Court issues judgment (the court may schedule an oral argument before rendering a decision).
---60 days to file an appeal--
4. January 2022-April 2022- Appeal must be filed.
At this point the Appellate Court will fix a briefing schedule. It is hard to predict what the schedule would look like and when an oral argument would take place. For the sake of your meeting, assume that if the appeal is filed in April 2022, a judgment would be rendered between 6-12 months from that time.
After that, we (or the gov't) would need to consider whether we would go to the Supreme Court.
