    Any lawyer will tell you when you walk into the courtroom the best odds you can get are 50/50.

    50:50 that it will be stopped? I would think that with the multiple lawsuits and the nature of the suits that it will at least be postponed until a final ruling can be made?

    I don't think I have ever told a client that.

    I always told them the chances were 50/50. We would win or lose.

    But with facts, circumstances and case law we had a poor, fair, good, or excellent chance of getting what we wanted.

    Your clients must have never asked you what their odds of winning were.

    I can't claim never to have said that, but it's not the norm.

    I voted "No" only based on the compensation argument made in the OP article. I don't want to see the ban overturned due to lack of compensation. That could potentially be rectified and then the ban still stands. I want to see the ban permanently overturned because the ATF is basing their ban off of purely political motivations and also claiming that "A" magically becomes "B" based on violating known physical laws.

    I think you're in luck. The remedy for lack of compensation is compensation, not undoing the taking.

    That's a silly assumption to make, and a non sequitur.

    Gee, it's almost is if they expected the lower court to ignore the law.
