In an order signed only by the clerk of the court, an apparent panel of three 2d Cir. appellate judges issued a curt 5-page affirmation of the SDNY court's FRCP 12b and FRCP 56 judgments from 2014 and 2017, covering 5 distinct claims. The appellate court's summary order offers little or no reasoning but merely a "the district court was right; you were wrong".
Is it worth filing a petition for reconsideration or en banc hearing for what seems like an unconscionably cursory decision with no legal reasoning? If so, is it a 14-day time period to do so?
(As context) Originally, the appellate court granted my request for oral argument on my appeal, but set the hearing date for January 4, 2018. I asked if I could have the date moved back to April or May as I had just started a new job and did not yet have enough accrued time to travel from overseas to New York. The court then denied the request for oral argument and did not permit me to appear by phone or video.
