I found this tidbit of information on the Pena v Cid case:

No. 09-1185
State of California
Challenging law prohibiting the sale of any unsafe handgun (any handgun not included on a state roster of handguns meeting certain safety requirements). After the parties filed a joint status report on 7/30/12, the court issued an order lifting the stay that had been in place pending the Ninth Circuit’s en banc decision in Nordyke v. King. The parties have agreed to withdraw any motions that were pending at the time of the stay. Discovery is to be completed by 5/3/13, and dispositive motions are due by 6/28/13.

Looks like the stay was lifted(finally) and the case might be moving forward. Can any legally savvy Calgunners elaborate on what happens next?

More waiting.

I'm not legally savvy. I am not legal counsel.

I'd guess that OC will ask for an extension on the delivery of discovery, then deliver a 1/2 a**ed, incomplete and evasive discovery late, then force Pena's counsel to file a Motion to Compel for a more comprehensive discovery.

This will push the case past 08/13 or so before discovery is completed. If OC wants to drag this case on, they will succeed in doing so.

This court may punt and issue another stay based on a different case (from Nordyke) later down the line. If the court is reluctant to hear this case, they will succeed in dragging this case on down the road.
