Cases Being Considered En Banc by the Eleventh Circuit

The following are the issues currently being reviewed, en banc, by the Eleventh Circuit:

1. Community State Bank, et al. v. James Strong (06-11582)
En Banc Review Granted: 9/11/2007

Does a federal court have the subject matter jurisdiction over a petition to compel arbitration brought under § 4 of the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 4, solely because the court, after “looking through” the petition, finds a federal question in the underlying dispute to be arbitrated?

2. United States v. Matthew Mason Dodge (08-10802)

Whether the district court erred when it required Dodge to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 16901–970?
3. Reeves v. C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (07-10270)

1. Whether the district court erred when it granted summary judgment in favor of C.H. Robinson and against Reeves's complaint of a hostile work environment on the ground Reeves was not harassed "because of" her sex, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-2(a)(1)?

2. Whether Reeves's complaint of a hostile work environment should be evaluated as a claim of disparate treatment or a claim of disparate impact?

4. United States v. William Irey (08-10997)
Issues: Not Yet Released

The Circuit's "en banc" page is out of date. Some (most) of these have been decided already, I believe.

Thanks, Sam. I updated the list and deleted the cases previously decided.

I think that the Strong case went away as well, though not with a real en banc opinion -
