D'Cruz v. McCraw

That's the NRA case in the State of Texas to allow CCW for 18-20 yr olds.

In an unusual twist of events, on Wed. the 17th, the Brady Bunch filed an amicus curiae brief in the case, D'Cruz v. McCraw (do I need to state who they filed against?).

While the brief hasn't been actually RECAPped, it is listed as Item #24 on the docket (see the OP for a link), but can be found here. I suggest getting a copy before the Brady's remove it.

So what's the twist? Yesterday, after noticing that the State has made a motion to request more time to answer the amended complaint (10-20-2010 - item #20), the Brady's moved to withdraw their amicus brief for the following reasons:

In light of the fact that defendants have not moved to dismiss Plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint and have instead requested additional time to respond to the Amended Complaint, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Mothers Against Teen Violence, and Texas Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, through undersigned counsel, move to withdraw their application for leave to file a brief as amici curiae.
They go on to say that they intend to file again, after one or both parties have made dispositive filings on the amended complaint.... "Well, uh, your Honor, were not sure what the State may now say and, um, we may want to change what we say, um, can we have a do-over? Please?"
