Shortly before Thanksgiving, the Superior Court entered an Order Granting Application for Reconsideration/Reargument ordering:
THAT the application for en banc reargument filed September 27, 2010 is GRANTED;This is big news in Pennsylvania, as we eagerly await the outcome.
THAT the decision of this Court filed September 16, 2010, is hereby withdrawn;
THAT the case be listed before the next available en banc panel; and
THAT the parties shall file twenty two (22) additional copies of all briefs and twelve (12) reproduced records in accordance with Pa.R.A.P. 2140. Each party shall, within the time period specified, either refile the brief previously filed together with a supplemental brief if desired, or prepare and file a substituted brief.
