Court Changes Mind In Rendition Case

The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has called for en banc review of a panel decision in June against a Canadian victim of an American rendition without being asked by anyone to do so. Nationwide, about 50-100 cases receive en banc review, but almost all of them involve strenuous requests from the parties for en banc review.

This is an extraordinarily rare event and that make that it is happening in a high profile war on terrorism case makes it even more remarkable.
