Challenging the constitutional aspects is fairly involved, as we all know.
Change your view, where does the law allow for the CA DOJ to decide to delay the transfer when they don't have any information that you are prohibited. Just because a person was arrested does not mean that they are prohibited. If they were convicted, there would be a record, but it seems that the DOJ is instead demanding proof that they are innocent. An arrest from years ago would have been a conviction OR dropped/not-guilty, it would not be pending.
