« Gun law update: June 26, 2007 | Main | China's Carbon Counts »


Yes, yes, it's been a while -- I'm pouring my time into my next book, "Bomb Jokes at Airports" (about the limits of free speech), plus we're expanding the line at Bloomfield Press, more news on that soon.

Q: How long until we know if Washington, D.C. will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on the gun-ban case it lost (the Parker case)?
A: 90 days from the denial of the en banc hearing.That means Aug. 6, 2007.

Q: If they do appeal, when might a decision arrive?
A: Assuming that cert is granted before year's end (meaning the High Court agrees to hear the case), we should have a decision no later than June 30, 2008. Read all about it in entry #3, below.
