En Banc Sixth Circuit On The Constitutionality Of The No Child Left Behind Act

How Appealing has the story below:
En banc U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit issues evenly divided ruling on lawsuit challenging the legality of the federal law known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001: You can access today's order, affirming the federal district court's ruling by an evenly divided court, at this link. In addition, four judges on the Sixth Circuit issued opinions totaling over 90 pages explaining their views of the case.

Back in January 2008, a three-judge Sixth Circuit panel issued this ruling on the case, and I had this post about the ruling on the day it issued.

Update: In news coverage of today's ruling, The Associated Press reports that "Feds prevail in dispute over education law."
