Going to The Supreme Court of the United States

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals strangely decided to deny my petition for en banc rehearing without the judges even voting whether or not to rehear the case.  This is strange given the dissent from the panel decision and the Supreme Court making it even more clear several days ago in Rodriguez v. United States that even when drug smugglers are pulled over with suspicion of a crime, any delay beyond the mission or purpose of the stop that extends the stop is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

 13-51114 [Richard Rynearson v. USA, et al], Non Dispositive Court Order
  Docket Text:
  COURT ORDER denying petition for rehearing en banc filed by Appellant Mr. Richard Rynearson [7886098-2] Without Poll. Mandate pull date is 05/11/2015 [13-51114] (NFD)

Seems a very unorthodox tactic by the Fifth Circuit, similar to the two judge majority refusing to consider whether or not the fourth amendment was violated in my appeal (ie the appeal itself).

Next stop, requesting cert before the Supreme Court of the United States.
