Parker is off and rolling!
On Monday, DC filed for an extension of time to file for cert., and Plaintiffs shot in an opposition this afternoon. Here both are, online.
DC's motion is quite weak. Basically (1) they took two months to decide whether to file, which now leaves them about a month to go, and it's complex, so give us another month and (2) we've taken on some outside attorneys and they need to get up to speed.
Plaintiffs' response hits hard. A petition for cert. hardly takes the research of a brief on the merits (here it almost writes itself: conflict between 5th and DC Circuits and the other CIrcuits, on a major constitutional issue. Respectfully submitted, (insert your name)).
One bit of news -- among the new attorneys on the DC side is a Walter Dellinger, Ass't Atty General, and for one term Solicitor General, under the Clinton Administration. Fuller bio here.
BTW, just in case you're interested, I've got a Second Amendment documentary film in distribution.
