Below is the first in a new series of video blogs that we will be featuring on our appellate blog.  The video blogs will give you an opportunity to meet the contributors behind the blog as they discuss topics of interest to you.  We also plan to feature various guest interviews in the near future, so be sure to continue following us.   

Our first video blog, presented by Amy Hocevar and me, addresses en banc practice in the Sixth Circuit.  It discusses the “ins and outs” of seeking en banc review of panel decisions and highlights the various pitfalls to avoid. This video blog also includes several important practitioner’s points to consider when deciding whether to file (and, indeed, even when to file) a petition for rehearing en banc in a particular case. 

If you want to know about en banc practice in the Sixth Circuit (especially if you are debating whether to file an en banc petition), then this short video blog is worthwhile viewing.
