SYKES, Circuit Judge JOHN DANIEL TINDER, Circuit Judge Nos. 081067 & 081689 LINDQUIST FORD, INC., STEVEN LINDQUIST, and CRAIG MILLER, PlaintiffsAppellees, v. MIDDLETON MOTORS, INC., DefendantAppellant. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. No. 07 C 12 Barbara B. Crabb, Chief Judge. O R D E R The petition for panel rehearing is DENIED. The slip opinion released on February 25, 2009, in this matter is AMENDED as follows: The last sentence of footnote 4 on p. 18 of the slip opinion ("There is no need for a presumption where, as here, there is direct and circumstantial evidence about Lindquist's expectation of payment.") is DELETED. The following is INSERTED in its place: There is no need for a presumption where there is direct or circumstantial evidence about expectation of payment; applying a presumption in such a case is not only unnecessary but inappropriate. Here, there is both direct and circumstantial evidence about Lindquist's expectation of payment, and therefore no presumption applies.
