An update on en banc petitions

A couple quick updates on the Third Circuit’s en banc rehearing front:

First, the court denied en banc rehearing in the NFL concussion-suit case. Media coverage here and here and in interesting blog post here.

Second, the panel losers in In re Asbestos Products Liability (panel decision post here) filed earlier this week for en banc and panel rehearing, coverage here.

Finally, I’ve got a hunch that draft opinions are circulating already in the Chavez v. Dole Food case argued en banc in February.
