Peruta Being Appealed En Banc

But not by County of San Diego, who was the defendant, but the California Attorney-General, who has filed as an intervenor because County of San Diego chose not to fight.  Count on Kamala Harris to defend a law originally passed as part of a scheme to disarm Chinese and Mexican residents of California, and which today disproportionately disarms blacks and Hispanics.

I understand that there is some question as to whether the California Attorney-General is entitled to file as an intervenor after the decision.

Been thinking about this, and it doesn't matter in the long term. Right now the other restrictive counties are being given a chance to surrender like Orange County did, and failures to do so will be followed by lawsuits. I think we can safely assume San Francisco city/county will appeal, and I would be surprised if they didn't appeal it all the way to the Supremes.
