Streaming USCA9 En Banc

The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (covering nine Far Western states) announced today that video of its "en banc" oral arguments will be available live on the Internet.

Federal courts of appeals normally hear cases in 3-judge panels, but cases are sometimes heard or reheard by the full court to resolve conflicts between panels or in cases of exceptional importance.  Because of its size, the Ninth Circuit rarely sits truly "en banc" but instead hears cases as an 11-judge court consisting of the chief judge and 10 judges chosen at random.
