Jane Doe Moves for "En Banc" Reconsideration in Loud v. Does

Jane Doe has moved for en banc reconsideration by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit of her application for a stay of the "John Doe" subpoena served upon her ISP.

Motion for En Banc Reconsideration

The term "en banc" means that the motion would be considered by all of the judges on the Second Circuit court, and not just by a panel of 3 judges.

She pointed out to the court that (a) the damage which would be caused by releasing the information would be irreversible: once her identity is divulged, it's divulged; (b) courts in other circuits and even state courts have held that such orders are appealable, since the inability to appeal from the order means that no meaningful appellate review could ever take place.
