NEW INTERNAL OPERATING PROCEDURE: Three Votes Required for En Banc Response
Last week, the 4th Court amended its Internal Operating Procedures to require only three votes to request a response to a motion for en banc reconsideration. IOP 14(b)iv:
Before this amendment, four votes were required to request a response. This rule does not change the rules that en banc review cannot be granted without a majority vote of the court.
