U.S. v. King (9th Cir. - Aug. 1, 2012)

You'll never see a speedier en banc process than this.

A panel opinion comes out in March.  A mere four weeks after oral argument.  Two months later, the case gets taken en banc.

Four weeks hence, the case is deemed submitted.  No need for oral argument.  Five weeks later, the en banc court issues its opinion.  Which consists, in its entirety, of three sentences.

That was easy, eh?
