Court Grants En Banc Rehearing in Body Shops’ Insurance Antitrust Action

The Eleventh Circuit voted to accept en banc rehearing in Quality Auto Painting Center of Roselle, Inc. v. State Farm Indemnity Co., 870 F.3d 1262 (11th Cir. 2017), a decision we covered here last September. The now-vacated panel decision, authored by Judge Wilson, had reversed the dismissal of antitrust and state-law claims asserted by auto-body-shop owners against a number of automobile insurers. The grant of rehearing is not surprising given the lengthy dissent (and partial concurrence) authored by Senior Judge Anderson.

Judges Marcus, Rosenbaum, Julie Carnes, and Jill Pryor have all recused themselves from this case and did not participate in the en banc polling.
