It was no accident that this was sprung just before the elections and there's no way they're going to get before the 9th en banc before the elections. Not that it would matter anyway. The full court will certainly re-affirm the decision. I expect this will go to the USSC sometime in the future and they'll overturn the decision.
This ruling makes a mockery of our elections. The 9th should (once again) hang its head in shame.
