“The appeals court ruling came in response to a request from Flynn’s lawyers, after Washington, D.C., federal district court Judge Emmet Sullivan did not promptly grant the Justice Department’s motion seeking to dismiss the case,” CNBC reported.

Here’s more detail from The Hill:

A three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals approved Flynn’s petition to intervene in the case after a district court judge had tapped an outside counsel to argue against the DOJ’s move.

The panel ruled 2-1, with two Republican-appointed judges carrying the majority, that U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan overstepped his authority in second-guessing the prosecutors’ decision.
