Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit warns against baseless petitions

In a Per Curiam ruling on a petition for rehearing issued July 3rd, in the Wisconsin case of Easley v. Reuss, the court cautioned:

Petitions for rehearing and petitions for rehearing en banc are mechanisms governed by rule and designed to ensure the integrity of individual panel decisions and the consistent and thoughtful development of the law. The criteria for both petitions are explicit, and, in submitting petitions, we expect counsel to ensure that their petitions meet those criteria.
This from an item dated July 8th in the Wisconsin Law Journal, written by David Ziemer. Read it all here.
