    RightInNYC is a lawyer type almost(but still an ok guy mostly, for a lawyer anyway), and he might be able to give a better answer than I did. I just happened to have the ruling open.

    "en banc"?

    That does not sound much worse than normal though really. IIRC, the SC overturns about 3/4ish of the rulings they rule on.

    The health care threads are elsewhere. Feel free to talk about it in those threads. We are discussing a current ruling. We are able to talk about more than one thing even, you might try it.

    What do you think that proves?



    If you're going to keep up with this nonsense, I'm not going to bother responding to you.
    You're the one pointing out from the start is was a split decision!

    Yes what does that prove??????

    That the "majority" sucks since they ruled against your guys???

    You only get prosecutorial immunity in the process of performing your job as prosecutor....you don't get it for illegally and in bad faith wrongly applying statutes that enable you to imprison people under false pretenses.

    'En banc' means the whole circuit sits and reviews a panel's decision.

    It's the Ninth Circuit, for crying out loud. The odds are that they'll be overturned shortly.

    Basically, the Ninth Circuit is an odd play performed while more serious jurists go about the business of applying the law.
