Divisions shall sit at: Washington, D.C.; St. Paul, Minnesota; Atlanta, Georgia; Houston, Texas; and San Francisco, California, and at such other places and times as the Chief Judge may designate. The Chief Judge shall assign cases to the divisions on an equitable basis having due regard for the geographical locations of the parties and the workloads of the divisions and individual judges thereof.

Such a hearing or rehearing is not favored and ordinarily will not be ordered except (1) when consideration by the full court is necessary to secure or maintain uniformity of its decisions, or (2) when the proceeding involves a question of exceptional importance.

If a party desires to suggest a rehearing en banc, the suggestion must be made within the time prescribed by Rule 40, Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, for filing a petition for rehearing, whether the suggestion is made in such petition or otherwise. The pendency of such a suggestion, whether or not included in a petition for rehearing, shall not affect the finality of the judgment of the court of appeals or stay the issuance of the mandate.
