The purpose of oral argument is to respond to the court's concerns and questions. It is not to give a speech. I have had several en banc arguments and they are just plain fun with all those judges asking questions. You really got to be on your toes as the questions come fast and overlap and are often utterly unconnected with each other. This favors Gura, who is very good on his feet. Short of a SCT argument, en banc arguments are an appellate lawyer's dream. They are extremely rare.
