So...assuming IL isn't going to appeal to the Supremes, which carry case goes there?

Title says it all...we don't even have the initial ruling from Palmer, so...what's in the pipeline?

Depends on exactly what they're looking for. Woollard or the NJ case would be good because their licensing doesn't specify mode of carry(concealed or open). However, the supremes may be waiting for a clear split, and I don't consider Moore to be a true split with any others out there.
With Moore all but mooted now we'll see at Scotus' big conference in September. Woollard will be ready to go. The odds go way up for Woollard if peruta or the NJ cases go our way.

Isn't anybody citing the Puerto Rico Supreme Court as a split? They changed PR from may-issue to shall-issue on 2A grounds.

Good question, Jim. I am imagining that the court could take Woolard and/or at least one of the three cases from the ninth where they combined the oral arguments. Since Gura put the court on notice that the Woollard petition was forthcoming, it is possible that they factored that in when they denied the Kalchalsky petition.

I actually hope they prefer Woollard.
