With the Supreme Court’s orders this morning, the Nordyke v. King saga at last comes to a close.
12-275 NORDYKE, RUSSELL, ET AL. V. KING, MARY V., ET AL.
Before McDonald, Judge O’Scannlain found that the Second Amendment was incorporated to the states. It went up for cert alongside McDonald. After McDonald, it was remanded where it bounced around the 9th Circuit, even going for en banc review again. On appeal to SCOTUS again, the Court asked the government to file a response to the petition in October 2012. Now, we have a firm denial. The case is over.
Kudos to Don Kilmer, who has been litigating this case for years.
