Rehearing denied by vote of 5-8 in plea bargain case, over Judge King's dissent

On the petition for rehearing in U.S. v. Holbrook, the Fourth Circuit voted 5-8 against rehearing en banc, the five being Judges Widener, Niemeyer, Michael, Motz, and King, not the likeliest of combinations. Judge King, who dissented from the panel decision, also dissented from the denial of rehearing en banc.
