The opinion of the court was delivered by: Per Curiam
On consideration of appellee's renewed petition for rehearing en banc, and the response thereto; and it appearing that the majority of the judges of this court has voted to grant the petition for rehearing en banc, it is
ORDERED that appellee's renewed petition for rehearing en banc is granted and that the opinion and judgment of March 4, 1999, as amended by this court's order of March 2, 2000, are hereby vacated. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk shall schedule this matter for argument before the court sitting en banc as soon as the calendar permits. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that the parties shall simultaneously file new briefs on or before March 5, 2001, and shall file responsive briefs no later than March 15, 2001. Each party shall file ten copies of its briefs. These new briefs shall be specifically designed for consideration by and addressed to the en banc court and shall supersede all briefs previously filed in this appeal. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that any requests for extension of time will be looked upon with disfavor and will be granted only upon a showing of good cause.
Associate Judge Reid would deny rehearing en banc.
