In the Roti V Bonta case, which challenges the state of California's ammunition restrictions, Judge Benitez has set a consolidated hearing on the merits of the case. This is significant news for California gun owners who have been waiting for movement in this case. The hearing is scheduled to take place on July 17th.
Previously, there had been little information or updates on this case since February, and Judge Benitez had been silent on this and other related cases. However, last week, an order from Judge Benitez was received, announcing the consolidated hearing. This means that Judge Benitez has the option to resolve the case in its entirety and issue a final judgment.
The state of California has now submitted their response to Judge Benitez's order. In their response, they request additional discovery, including the opportunity to depose plaintiffs and engage in expert discovery. They argue that denying them this opportunity would violate ninth circuit precedent and result in a reversible error.
It is clear that the state of California wants to delay the case further. They have previously argued for pushing these cases out and have now reiterated their desire for additional discovery. It remains to be seen how Judge Benitez will respond to their arguments during the hearing.
This update highlights the ongoing battle over California's ammunition restrictions. Gun owners in the state face restrictions on purchasing ammunition online and additional fees and wait times to exercise their Second Amendment rights. The outcome of this case could have significant implications for gun owners in California and potentially impact ammunition restrictions in other states as well.
