In a recent development, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit has decided to rehear the case involving the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Radford Fant versus the Commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The case, originally from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida, will now be heard by the court sitting en banc, meaning all active judges on the bench will participate.
The decision to rehear the case came after a petition for rehearing was filed and a poll was requested on whether the appeal should be reheard by the court en banc. A majority of the judges in active service on the court voted in favor of granting the rehearing.
As a result of this decision, the panel’s previous opinion on the case has been vacated. The case, numbered 21-12314, will now proceed with a fresh round of hearings before the full bench of the Eleventh Circuit Court. The details of the original case and the issues at stake have not been specified in the court’s order.
