The decision in this case is governed by binding precedent of the former Fifth Circuit: Holliday v. Todd Shipyards Corp., 654 F.2d 415 (5th Cir. Unit A 1981).* The Director, in his brief, acknowledges such, and, further, that we must affirm the decision of the Benefits Review Board unless this court, sitting en banc, overrules Holliday. The Board's decision is affirmed, without prejudice to the Director's right to petition the court for rehearing en banc.
