Update: Third Circuit Grants Government’s Request For En Banc Review In Double Eagle Dispute

Double eagle(2)

I have written before about Roy Langbord v. U.S. Dept. of Treasury, a lawsuit over ten old, rare, and valuable "Double Eagle" coins.  Very long story, short — plaintiffs gave the coins to the government for authentication, the Government claimed they were stolen and refused to return them, plaintiffs sued to get them back. A divided panel ruled in favor of plaintiffs and ordered the coins returned. The Government sought en banc review of this decision and, on July 28, 2015, this request was granted. As a result, the panel's decision has been vacated and this already fascinating case continues to roll on. Stay tuned.
