We know how they lean. They don't give a damn about the briefs, or orals. They want this case dead. That's how this circuit rolls.
The judges will carefully cherry pick from each to support the ruling they wanted to give from the start, in the hopes that it is good enough to have SCOTUS deny certiorari.
