It's been awfully quiet in here on the progress of any carry cases in CA and around the country. Not really any news of any sort since the Nordyke nondecision. Are our teams regrouping figuring out what to do next? Do we expect anything of benefit to actually come out of Nordyke, other than releasing the chains on the other cases? :gene:
What are the next steps for Scocca, Richards, Peruta, etc?
Sure, I'll be glad to:
Richards & Peruta: On hold for Nordyke
Peterson (10th Circuit): Awaiting decision, this panel takes about 1-3.5 months to decision.
Kachalsky (2nd Circuit): All briefings have been completed, oral arguments are being calendared for the week of 8/20
Pizcatowski (3rd Circuit): Appellant briefing has started. Awaiting the state's response
Hightower: (1st Circuit): All briefing has been completed. Oral argument is calendared for early June.
Moore and Shepard (7th Circuit): Preliminary Injunction Appeal, currently on accelerated schedule, briefings will be done in late June.
Woollard: (District of Maryland & 4th Circuit): Appeal filed by the state on merits. District Court is currently considering stay during appeal, has asked for briefings on a full stay, a temporary stay is in place, court will rule by the end of this month on the stay, if not early next month. If there's no stay in district, the state may ask the 4th Circuit to stay it for abuse of discretion by the district judge (extremely unlikely).
