Rehearing Granted for Conflict Minerals Rule Decision
November 19, 2014｜Written by GreenSoft Technology, Inc.
The D.C. Court of Appeals issued an order today granting a panel rehearing on the court's April 14, 2014 Conflict Minerals decision.
Petitions for a panel rehearing were filed by the SEC and Amnesty International on May 29. On September 12, the National Association of Manufacturers, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Business Roundtable filed a joint response against the petition.
Today the court granted the petition with an order for the case to be reheard before the three appellate court judges who made the original decision.
The SEC had requested a rehearing before the entire D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, but the court deferred that portion of the petition. It is still possible that the D.C. Circuit may decide to rehear the case en banc after the panel rehearing decision.
For a summary of the initial court decision, see our past blog post on the topic here.
