Hornbeck Offshore Services, LLC v. Jewell

Petition for certiorari denied on December 16, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-56 5th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2013

Issue: (1) Whether – as the Third, Seventh, and Eleventh Circuits hold – a district court possesses authority to prevent circumvention of its orders by imposing sanctions on conduct that violates the understood purpose of an injunction, but not its explicit terms, or whether – as the First, Second, Fifth, and Tenth Circuits hold – the four corners of an injunction’s text limit a district court’s civil contempt authority; (2) whether – as the First, Third, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Tenth, and Eleventh Circuits hold – a court of appeals should accord deference to a district court’s construction of its own orders, or whether – as the Second, Fifth, District of Columbia, and Federal Circuits hold – an appellate court reviews that construction de novo.
