Interesting development in Palmer case
Palmer v. DC is a challenge to DC's effective ban on carrying. CalGuns reports that Chief Justice Roberts just assigned it to a Judge Scullin of the Northern District of NY, sitting in DC by designation.
Several other cases were assigned to him by the same order, so whether this has meaning or not is unknown.
Judge Scullin's Wikipedia page indicates he's from upstate NY, Army vet and reservist, US Attorney under Reagan, appointed to the bench by George Bush, Sr.
