The order was per curium.  Judges Moore, O’Malley, Reyna, and Chen concurred in the denial. Judges Dyk, Newman, Wallach and Hughes dissented from the denial. A total of five opinions were filed; two in concurrence and three in dissent. The order and opinions can be obtained here: Arthrex en banc denial.
