I see that the three judges from the merits panel are part of the unanimous decision here (as was also the case with the unanimous per curiam order granting en banc rehearing and vacating the panel decision). It's always refreshing when judges are willing to admit they made a mistake.

Nice summary and explanation, thank you!

I think this case was decided properly and will not likely see cert.

This is good news. It's heartening to see the CAFC make such a clear and common sense decision in an area that was heading squarely for la la land. Thank you for such a clear explanation.

Now they have recovered their mojo maybe we can expect to see some common sense on 101
