I read it as number 1.
Tangential to this, and likely only interesting to the lawyers, Congress wrote a new law (the Class Action Fairness Act, or CAFA) that permitted appeal of a remand order “not less than seven days after the order is entered.” Which seems to say that after the order is entered, you must wait at least seven days, but then you can appeal the order at any time – even ten years later!
Here’s were it gets interesting (to me): the courts that have construed this order (the Ninth and Tenth Circuits, from what I can find) have held that this language means the exact opposite: you must appeal the order within seven days of the entry of the order. Here is an article about the mess.
The consequence of it is that many lawyers have chosen to appeal CAFA remands on the seventh day after entry of the order – so that they fall within both the language of the statute and the opposing interpretation of that statute by the courts.
Thus, panache45, I would suggest you buy your tickets on the seventh day. That way you’ll be fine.
