Katie Couric, et al., and "Under the Gun" get caught doctoring footage to make pro-gun speakers look dumb. She asks a question of a group of Virginia Citizens Defense League members, and in the film as edited they stare in dumfounded silence for eight seconds, unable to answer. But VCDL made audio footage of the interview, and in it the members promptly give several answers. She appears to have spliced footage of her asking the question to footage of the group sitting in polite silence when no question was pending.
It's Doe v. Franklin County, handled by Joshua Prince. The court held that any official who discloses, other than to law enforcement, information from a license to carry application is subject to a civil penalty and not shielded by official immunity. I'd suggest anyone whose information might have been disclosed contact Prince immediately.

It's rare that I can say that, especially on 2A matters, but Teixeira v. Alameda County meets that description. Basically, the county adopted and interpreted a zoning ordinance so that it in effect prohibited all new gun stores, and the 9th Circuit struck that down. Among other things, it recognized that a gun dealer may assert the rights of his future customers, that the Heller "categorical exclusions" (felons, commercial regulations, etc.) are to be read narrowly -- "it's sorta like that" is not good enough -- and suggests that language about a class of laws being "longstanding" and thus presumptively allowed requires a more specific showing that the type of regulation at issue is of a longstanding class.
