En Banc 5th Circuit decides In Re: Volkswagen

Back in May, we reported on a In Re: Volkswagen of America.  The case involved a transfer-of-venue issue that was substantial enough to draw an amicus signed by 14 law professors  (neither of us signed).  The 5th Circuit released its en banc opinion on Friday.  Judge Jolly wrote for the 10-member majority, granting the petition for mandamus and ordering the district court to transfer the case.  Judge King wrote for the 7-member dissent.  --RR
