Ninth Circuit going en banc on reasonableness review

Howard Bashman reports here on this order from the Ninth Circuit granting rehearing en banc in two cases addressing reasonableness review after Booker.  The two cases are Carty (discussed here) and Zavala (discussed here).  I had heard of griping from various quarters about the ruling and impact of Zavala, so I am not too surprised by this development.

Perhaps what is most interesting is the moving reasonableness target that the en banc Ninth Circuit may face.  It seems unlikely that this en banc case will be fully briefed before the Supreme Court hears Cunningham, the California Blakely case in which the state defends its system essentially on Booker reasonableness grounds.  Also, as I suggested here, the Supreme Court perhaps should grant cert on a federal reasonableness case in the next few months given the splits I have noted here.  It will interesting to see how SCOTUS developments could impact the Ninth Circuit's en banc work.

Law student here: Question: If you are a member of the 10th Circuit bar but want to sign an amicus brief for a group in the 9th Circuit, would they accept it?

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Most criticism of the Ninth Circuit can be summarized by the following two claims: the Ninth Circuit is politically liberal and out of step with Supreme Court precedent, and the large size of the court prevents it from maintaining a coherent body of case law.
