The Adar decision issued by a three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit was the subject of a post I made October 1, 2010.  You can read my post here.  The ruling, issued in February and amended in March, was that a same-gender adoption judgment in New York was entitled to full faith and credit in Louisiana. 

On the very day I made my post, the Fifth Circuit en banc vacated the three-judge panel ruling on a petition for re-hearing:

 On October 1, 2010, the Court announced that a majority of the Circuit Judges in regular active service voted in favor of granting En Banc rehearing. By operation of Fifth Circuit Rule 41.3, that decision automatically vacated the Panel decision of February 18, 2010.

That leaves us for now where the case started, which is with a pending appeal to the Fifth Circuit, which now will take the matter up in the full panel.

Stay tuned.

Thanks to attorney Bill Jacob for bringing this to my attention.
