Amponsah v. Holder (9th Cir. - Sept. 12, 2013)

You don't usually see the Ninth Circuit demand a "rolling" response.  Like this one:

"Within 14 days after entry of this order, and within 90 days periodically thereafter, Respondent shall file a status report advising this court of the status of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ proceedings in the cases in which the Board is considering whether to overrule or modify Matter of Cariaga, 15 I. & N. Dec. 716 (BIA 1976). See Petition for Panel Rehearing at 8 (“[T]he Board has recently called for supplemental briefing in two cases presenting the issue of whether the rule in Matter of Cariaga should be overruled or modified.”). Submission is withdrawn pending further order of this court."

The fact that it's a continuing duty puts some degree of pressure to actually get the thing done.

I like it.
