Instead of updating three threads with the same information, I'm putting this here as general information.
Of the 3 cases up for orals in the 9th Circuit, all 3 will be heard on Dec. 6th by the same panel, even though the cases are not consolidated. What follows is the latest from the CA9 dockets:
In Richards v. Prieto
10/29/2012 53 Filed (ECF) Appellees County of Yolo and Ed Prieto citation of supplemental authorities. Date of service: 10/29/2012.  (JAW)
Appellees authority is:
Hightower v. City of Boston
Piszczatoski v. Filko
Moore v. Madigan
Peterson v. McCabe
People v. Mitchell (a criminal case we were not following)
In Peruta v. San Diego
10/17/2012 100 Filed Appellees County of San Diego and William D. Gore additional citations. Served on 10/15/2012. (panel)  (RL)
Appellees site People v. Mitchell
as a supplemental authority.
So far, no 28(J) letters have been filed in Baker v. Kealoha.
