Uh, I found this on the scotus blog, so no one need reply.

Those cases were among a list of denials of review in pending cases. As expected, the Court granted no new cases for review. The Orders List showed no action on an appeal by five Washington, D.C., residents seeking to loosen restrictions on individuals’ right to bring constitutional challenges to laws before they are actually enforced. The case, Parker, et al., v. District of Columbia, et al. (07-335), is a companion to the District of Columbia’s appeal on the scope of the Second Amendment “right to keep and bear arms.” The city’s appeal (District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290), was granted last Tuesday, and is expected to be heard in March. The Court may be holding the appeal in Parker until Heller is decided.

My bad, should of looked before I posted.
