The court en banc reinstates and adopts the concluding paragraph from the panel opinion, 622 F.2d 1207, at 1209, which was vacated by taking this case en banc. That portion of the opinion of the district court which denies plaintiff recovery of attorney's fees for time spent in defending the compulsory counterclaim is affirmed by an evenly divided court.
