McDonald and Pending Court Cases

OK, we got the McDonald v Chicago ruling we were hoping for. Maybe not by the margin wanted, but a win is a win in my book.
So here's my question:
With the decision made, what happens to the pending cases in California, the 9th Circuit Court and elsewhere that have been waiting for SCOTUS to rule?
I seem to recall reading about numerous cases all sitting around waiting for this day. Is there a mountain of paperwork being filed?
Are lawyers lining up at court houses to see if they can get other gun laws looked at by the courts?

What about the decision that the 9th Circuit has on hold? Any ideas when that will get revisited?

OK, do I get a prize for asking questions without answers?

I'm curious too. I think we had a list of affected cases in the pre-decision megathread.

Let's stay with the megathread if it's discussed there.
