    The Parker case got a step closer today. DC filed a motion for a stay of its ruling for 90 days, the time period to allow for a cert petition. They said they may file. These stays are routinely granted, but Judge Silbermann, author of the DC Circuit opinion, took the unusual step of noting that a stay just to put it off was not cool. His warning doesn't compel them to file, but does put them on a bit of notice.

    Good. This board has changed my mind. I hope it goes all the way.

    A new meaning to the word "Parkerized".

    The Miller test:

    of the kind in common use at the time
    part of the ordinary military equipment
    could contribute to the common defense

    DC claims no party would suffer harm from a stay. What about people who go to jail because of this unconstitutional law?

    Would anybody make an argument that ruling striking down a political speech restriction should be stayed for 90 days and that this would not cause harm?
