  1. Well we still have the national parks case and lowrey v commonwealth. The parks case requires a response from the solicitor general which is why it is not on the latest batch of orders.

  2. I like Woollard better anyway, and it would accomplish the same thing. Williams looked more tenuous, even to a legal layman.

  3. my legal read on Williams was he knew he was wrong. He knew he hadn’t requested a permit, although under Maryland’s rules, it would have been a hail mary. He was carrying a loaded weapon. It was not the best case for legal carry.

  4. My guess is that neither side on the court wanted to gamble. The pro-rights side saw a man with a dubious claim and the anti-rights side would rather leave the lower court ruling intact.

  5. Me, I think Mueller vs. Maenza has a better prospect, even if they punt the named plaintiff for standing. There are others on the suit, after all.
