The Second Circuit Federal Court of Appeals issued an order dated 5/15/13 which harshly castigated both Ellen Mariani and her attorney Bruce Leichty and which issued financial sanctions against both of them and which accused Bruce of “bad faith” and “anti-Semitism” and filing frivolous briefs. On 5/29/13 Bruce filed a Petition For Rehearing En Banc of the 5/15/13 order. (This means that he is asking the court to reconsider the matter with a full panel of judges, instead of just the two who issued that order.) Bruce’s Petition For Rehearing En Banc refutes the court’s allegations of the 5/15/13 order. The petition can be read by clicking here.
