OK. After a bit of research, this was the second of two cases that Embody lost. The first case was Embody v. Ward.

In that case, Mr. Embody appealed his loss to the 6th Circuit. That case just heard oral arguments and now awaits a decision. Here is the CA6 docket. I've highlighted the important filings:

Notice that the SAF and CGF filed an amicus brief? This was done to offset any damage that might arise from Embody's appeal. We all know that Alan Gura has better things to do, than try to minimize the damage that this might bring us.

These filings are currently hosted by Gene Hoffman, Chairman, Calguns Foundation. To retrieve them (if you are interested - I'm not), go here.

So while Embody has lost his current foray into Federal District Court, it is hardly over yet. Remember, he plans to appeal this case also (thus creating more work for the SAF and Alan Gura)!
