B. Rulings Under Review.

The ruling under review is a memorandum and order (per. Hon. Rosemary

M. Collyer), dated January 13, 2012, which granted defendant-appellee’s motion

for summary judgment. The Memorandum Opinion is not yet reported in the

Federal Supplement, but is available on Westlaw at 2012 WL 11206.

C. Related Cases.

This case has not previously been before any court other than the district

court. Similar suits are currently pending in two other district courts. In Ron

Peterson Firearms v. Melson No. 1:11cv00678 (D.N.M.), defendant’s motion to

transfer venue to the district court for the District of Columbia is fully briefed and

pending. In 10 Ring Precision, Inc. v. Jones, No. 5:11-cv-00663 (W.D. Tex.), the

district court on December 22, 2011, denied defendant’s motion to transfer venue

to the district court for the District of Columbia, and the parties have submitted a

proposed briefing schedule for dispositive motions.



Respectfully submitted,
