DC Circuit Denies Enbanc Hearing in Parker vs. DC

Just in, folks, the DC Circuit court has denied the District's request to have Parker vs. DC reheard enbanc. This means Parker stands and the District must now appeal to the Supreme Court.

Text of the ruling follows:

United States Court of Appeals
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT
No. 04-7041 September Term, 2006
03cv00213
Filed On: May 8, 2007 [1039073]

Shelly Parker, et al.,
Appellants
v.
District of Columbia and Adrian Fenty, Mayor of the
District of Columbia,
Appellees

BEFORE: Ginsburg, Chief Judge, and Sentelle, Henderson, Randolph,*
Rogers,* Tatel,* Garland,* Brown, Griffith, and Kavanaugh,
Circuit Judges

O R D E R

Appellees’ petition for rehearing en banc and the response thereto were circulated to the full court, and a vote was requested. Thereafter, a majority of the judges eligible to participate did not vote in favor of the petition. Upon consideration of the foregoing and appellees’ Fed. R. App. P. 28(j) letter, it is ORDERED that the petition be denied.
Per Curiam

FOR THE COURT:
Mark J. Langer, Clerk

BY:
Michael C. McGrail
Deputy Clerk

* Circuit Judges Randolph, Rogers, Tatel, and Garland would grant the petition for
rehearing en banc.

Expect a lot of talk on Parker over the next few days. Now it gets interesting.


Indeed.
