Can someone remind me why California filed the complaint and petition in both district and appellate courts? I remember there's a reason for doing it, but not why.

Brian -- There is some uncertainty regarding where to file unreasonable delay suits. There is a question as to whether jurisdiction is proper in the district court or in the court of appeals for this type of suit. Presumably, the parties are trying to cover the bases to ensure that the matter will be heard.
