District Of Columbia Doesn’t Get Its Stay

This afternoon Judge Frederick Scullin denied the District of Columbia’s request for an immediate administrative stay in Wrenn et al v. District of Columbia et al.

Having reviewed the parties’ submissions and the applicable law, the Court hereby

ORDERS that Defendants’ motion for an immediate administrative stay is DENIED; and
the Court further

ORDERS that Plaintiffs shall file their papers in opposition to Defendants’ motion for a stay
pending appeal on or before June 22, 2015; and the Court further

ORDERS that Defendants shall file any papers in further support of their motion for a stay
pending appeal on or before June 26, 2015; and the Court further

ORDERS that counsel shall appear for oral argument in support of, and in opposition to,
Defendants’ motion for a stay pending appeal on July 7, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

The Second Amendment Foundation is rightly taking this as a win for them. While they didn’t get the contempt citation that they sought, they were successful in opposition to DC’s request for an immediate administrative stay. DC, as Alan Gura noted, had drug its heels for a week before they requested the stay.
