Vacating a prior panel opinion, the Eleventh Circuit en banc held that a conviction for felony battery under Fla. Stat. 784.041 categorically qualifies as a crime of violence under USSG § 2L1.2 because it has as an element the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force.
Judges Wilson, Martin, Jordan, Rosenbaum, and Jill Pryor dissented.
