I'm with KWC.  She should have adequate information to come to a decision.  Let's just hope it is the correct one.

Any idea on when the judge will issue her decision?

That's a great question--not sure anyone knows the answer. It could be this week or it could be in July or later. Fingers crossed!

Judge Myerscough's comments on Moore when it was remanded back to the district were solid gold. Hoping for good things here.

I must have missed those. I was under the impression that she was pretty hostile to firearms rights.
Illinois' FCCA is a prime example of the maxim that sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

Skinny did a real good synopsis on it, too.

Myerscough wasn't having any of the State's "this case is moot, we're gonna litigate the attorney's fees and expenses" garbage. She point blank stated that the Moore plaintiffs had not obtained the sought after relief. It may have been more of a "OK, so this is what they wanted, this is what they got, nope. Didn't get everything they wanted." It was by the book. She was correct, they sought invalidation of the ban on carriage of stun devices and the FCCA kept the ban on carriage of stun devices. Can't have relief without relief. She also refused to play games with the State, attempting to nickel and dime counsel for the Moore plaintiffs. Then again, all judges are human beings and all humans are biased. To state otherwise would be intellectually dishonest. I can't begin to speculate on how she'll rule but she seems to have little patience for government antics as evidenced by her granting summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff in a 1983 false arrest and excessive force case arising out of a Sangamon County Deputy's liberal taser usage (LEO who arrested a woman for no reason, then repeatedly tased her into submission because she asked why she was being arrested, presumably because he believed he had the authority to order anyone to do anything under any circumstance).

Four years have passed since Illinois passed the FCCA, three and one-half years since they certified me to teach classes, two and one-half years since the case was filed and they still won't allow me to apply for a license.  Anybody think Judge Myerscough will ever issue her decision?

She will eventually but my goodness, she seems to be taking her sweet time to do it . . . sitting on the edge of my seat here.

I can't help but wonder if she was waiting for an outcome on the Peruta case before issuing her opinion. Yea, I'm VERY anxious to get a ruling!!!

Well if she was hoping SCOTUS would take the case, they didn't, so Moore is still binding on her.

Absolutely agree.

Hope to see a positive resolution to this sometime soon. We could use the tourism money, and IL has a bad enough rep as it stands.

Maybe she was hoping nationwide reciprocity would pass then she wouldn't have to rule on this case.
