Sunnydale case: Justice Kennedy asks for response
Scotusblog has it here. A brief summary: the city of Sunnydale, CA, enacted a ban on magazines holding more than ten rounds. It was challenged in US District Court, with a motion for preliminary injunction (to stay enforcement of the law while the case was under consideration). The District Court denied the motion, which was appealed to the Ninth Circuit, which also denied it. That denial was in turn appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
I'd have given it low odds there -- the Supreme Court is unlikely to trouble itself with whether a city ordinance should be stayed for the months necessary to dispose of a case. But in the latest development, Justice Kennedy (who handles emergency motions from the Ninth Circuit) ordered the city to respond by 5 PM tomorrow. This indicates at the least that he did not want to deny the motion out of hand. Whether it means more, will have to see.
UPDATE: the motion is online here. It's well-written, I think.
