The Legal Intelligencer Blog
06/27/2008

Bruce Merenstein authored a post for The Legal Intelligencer Blog published on June 27.  Federal courts of appeals deny petitions for rehearing every day and, unless a judge on the court dissents, there is seldom an opinion accompanying the denial.  However, he notes that a case from the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals - Perez v. Sanford-Orlando Kennel Club - offers an exception to the rule and a lesson for lawyers who might be thinking about pushing the envelope of appellate advocacy.
