The Eleventh Circuit is no longer in a state of emergency. At the end of last year, the Chief Judge had issued General Order 41 [.pdf], which allowed appeals to be heard by panels that did not include at least 2 11th Circuit judges. On Friday, the Court rescinded that emergency via General Order 42 [.pdf]. Panels that have already heard argument or had non-argument cases submitted prior to the issuance of Order 42 will consider the appeals as submitted, but all future panels will go back to having at least 2 11th Circuit Judges on them.
