SACRAMENTO: April 4, 2019. Citing the California Attorney General’s appeal to Judge Roger Benitez’s ruling on the constitutional legality of owning high-capacity magazines, Judge Benitez ruled in favor of a permanent injunction against the sale of high-capacity magazines until such time a higher court resolves the issue:
Both parties indicate in briefing that persons and business entities in Californiamay have manufactured, imported, sold, or bought magazines able to hold more than 10 rounds since the entry of this Court’s injunction on March 29, 2019 and inreliance on the injunction. Indeed, it is the reason that the Attorney General seeks urgent relief in the form of a stay pending appeal. Both parties suggest that it isappropriate to fashion protection for these law-abiding persons.
THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Judgment is stayed in partpending final resolution of the appeal from the Judgment. The permanent injunction enjoining enforcement of California Penal Code § 32310 (a) and (b) is hereby stayed, effective 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 5, 2019.
