Ivan Peña is the first named plaintiff (Ivan Peña, Roy Vargas, Doña Croston, Brett Thomas, Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation), Wilfredo Cid is "the Chief of the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms, and as such is responsible for formulating, executing and administering the State of California’s laws, customs, practices, and policies at issue in this lawsuit". Steven Lindley replaced Cid in that DOJ position, ans was substituted for Cid in the suit.
