I watched the oral arguments video. Basically, the case is now muted. There is no point on a ruling on any Constitutional question. There only remains the details of a stipulation to be agreed on by both parties.
I sure hope that the Nordykes are awarded costs for having to litigate unnecessarily for over a decade.
Apparently, the County 'blinked' and an alert justice seized the opportunity to force an agreement by both sides that yes indeed, the Nordykes could have their Gun Shows after all. The Nordyke attorney didn't really 'concede' much, he was just annoyed that the County is just now claiming that their ordinance never really was a ban, although obviously he was reluctant to accept the stipulation that the gun tethering be mandatory.
As the Nordyke's attorney pointed out, many gun sellers already tether their firearms to the table via a thin cable, so it is really a loss of face for the County to implement a 'ban', call it a 'ban', represent their ordinance in the early stages of litigation as a 'ban', then finally admit in Court that the ordinance really wasn't a 'ban' after all. The only 'face-saving' argument the County's attorney could offer was that they 'hinted' somehow in their filings that Gun Shows 'might' be allowed under the ordinance as far back as 2008 (but the Attorney could not really specify how or why).
There were many other cases on 'hold' pending the outcome of this case, so now they can proceed.
