Breaking news -- Cuban Spy en banc

I have it on good authority that the Eleventh Circuit has granted en banc review in United States v. Campa, the cuban spy opinion.

UPDATE: Confirmed. Here is the text of the order:

Before EDMONDSON, Chief Judge, TJOFLAT, ANDERSON, BIRCH, DUBINA, BLACK, CARNES, BARKETT, HULL, MARCUS, WILSON and PRYOR, Circuit Judges*.
B Y T H E C O U R T :
A member of this Court in active service having requested a poll on the suggestion of rehearing en banc and a majority of the judges in this Court in active service having voted in favor of granting a rehearing en banc,
IT IS ORDERED that the above causes shall be reheard by this court en banc. The
previous panel's opinion is hereby VACATED.

*Senior U. S. Circuit Judge Phyllis A. Kravitch may elect to participate in further proceedings in these matters pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 46(c).

What a surprise? NOT. The Eleventh Circuit strikes again. Everybody should have seen this coming.
