Dickens v. Ryan (9th Cir. - Jan. 23, 2014)

Here's a neat little en banc decision from the Ninth Circuit where you get to count the votes.  Not an easy task given the various lineups around Parts I, II and III of the opinion.

Particularly interested in the count is Gregory Dickens.  Who lives or dies depending upon whether the vote's 6-5 or 5-6.

There's a little something for everyone in this one.  Check out the lineups.

It's another case where the en banc draw matters.
