No (Re)argument here. At the request of a judge, the court, sua sponte, conducted a poll as to whether to rehear Muntaqim v. Coombe en banc. The case involved the issue of whether a provision of New York Election Law, which disenfranchises persons currently in prison or on parole can be challenged under the Voting Rights Act. The Court declined to rehear the case. The order with concurrences and dissents can be found here. The original panel decision, which affirmed the dismissal of the action, can be found here.
