EDWARD PERUTA, MICHELLE LAXSON,
JAMES DODD, DR. LESLIE BUNCHER,
CALIFORNIA RIFLE AND PISTOL ASSOCIATION FOUNDATION

       Plaintiffs,
   v.

COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO,
WILLIAM D. GORE
INDIVIDUALLY AND IN HIS 
CAPACITY AS SHERIFF,

      Defendants.

Introduction

Peruta v. County of San Diego is a Second Amendment case challenging the concealed carry license issuing policies in San Diego County. This case was started when Ed Peruta applied for his conceal carry license and was subsequently denied. He wished to carry for defense of self and family.

Ed then started the internal appeals process with the license division for the sheriff’s office. He painstakingly exhausted all administrative options for appealing the denial of his concealed carry license. After which Ed hired an attorney and filed a civil rights case in federal court. Both the County of San Diego, and Sheriff Gore himself are defendants in this case. The lawsuit was later amended and added several other plaintiffs including the CRPA Foundation which helped strengthen the case for the general public.

This case was lost in U.S. District Court on December 12, 2010. On December 14, 2010 and a Notice to Appeal has been electronically filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th circuit.

Status

The 9th Circuit Case Number is: 10-56971.

See the 9th Circuit's page for the case here.

  • The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has voted to take the case en banc. Briefs are already submitted, unless the Court requests supplements. Oral arguments will be the week of June 15. The panel of judges has not yet been announced.
  • The Attorney General of California had submitted a motion to intervene in the case Feb 27, 2014. Several 'amici' have submitted requests to the court to rehear.
The district court erred in denying the applicant’s motion for summary
judgment on the Second Amendment claim because San Diego County’s
“good cause” permitting requirement impermissibly infringes on the Second
Amendment right to bear arms in lawful self-defense.
REVERSED and REMANDED.

Intent

This suit seeks to do two things.

  1. Seeks to establish "self defense" sufficient for Sheriff Gore's "Good Cause" requirement in San Diego County.
  2. Issue CCW licenses to all plaintiffs.

NOTE: County residency requirements were an issue early on in this case. However, an inspection of the undisputed facts in support of the partial MSJ filed on 9/3/2010 clearly shows that the residency requirement is no longer in dispute. This basically means that the County has ceded the challenge that Ed Peruta is a resident of San Diego County.
