Dearth v. Holder (was Hodgkins v. Holder)

Alan Gura continues the fight to invalidate the federal restriction on buying firearms out of state. Mr. Hodgkins has decided to move back to the United States so he is no longer a qualified plaintiff and has moved to be dismissed. With that change the case is now captioned Dearth v. Holder. The appellant's opening brief was filed today in the DC Federal Court of Appeals.
Wow, that is a comparatively old one (filed when Heller was still Parker and before McDonald was even in district court). I remember that one from law school. Originally SAF had William Gameros of Fish & Richardson (the gov't attorney from Emerson) representing Hodgkins. I figured it had just got dropped after Heller and McDonald as I didn't hear anything more about it. Interesting to see it is still soldiering on and that Gura is now representing the plaintiffs.
