Gerald Henneghan and T.H., by his Father Gerald Henneghan, Appellants v. Muriel Bowser, Mayor of the District of Columbia, et al., Appellees

No. 16-7069

Decided: November 29, 2016

BEFORE: Garland, Chief Judge,* and Henderson, Rogers, Tatel, Brown, Griffith, Kavanaugh, Srinivasan, Millett, Pillard, and Wilkins, Circuit Judges

ORDER

Upon consideration of the petition for rehearing en banc, which contains a fourth emergency motion and a request for recusal of this court; and the absence of a request by any member of the court for a vote, it is

ORDERED that the request for recusal be denied. Appellants have not alleged any reasonable basis for finding that the judges of this court have any personal bias against them, or that the judges' impartiality could reasonably be questioned. See 28 U.S.C. § 455; Liteky v. United States, 510 U.S. 540, 555 (1994) (“[J]udicial rulings alone almost never constitute a valid basis for a bias or partiality motion.”). It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the petition be denied. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the emergency motion be dismissed as moot.

FOR THE COURT:

Mark J. Langer, Clerk
