11 Very simplyput, a motion to amendan ordergrantingsummaryjudgmentto the
T 2 Defendantson all issuesis not a mereadministrative
motion. This courtshould
13 summarilydenythe administrativemotionon thosegroundsalone.
l4 Proceduralissue#2: Plaintiffshavefiled a Notice of Appeal. As this opposition
15 brief is beingprepared,Plaintiffs' counseldoesnot know if the Notice of Appealwas
T 6 filed beforethe Defendants'Motion for AdministrativeRelief. If the Notice of Appeal

t7 was filed first, the District Courtmay not havejurisdictionto hearwhat is in fact a
18 substantivemotion.
l9 Turningto substantiveissues:Defendants

a
.¿ This borderson bad faith litigation. If the Defendantsdid not have a good faith belief in
a
J the factual concessionthey made, they should not have included it in their Motion for

4 SummaryJudgment.

5 FederalRule of Civil Procedure11 makesevery signatureon a pleading, motion or

6 other paper a "certification of merits" of the documentsigned and authorizessanctionsfor


.f
violation of the certification.

8 The Motion for Administrative Reliet which is really a substantiveevidentiary

9 motion, seeksto alter or amend facts that have already been adjudicatedby this court.

10 Thís factual concessiongoes to the very heart of this case.

11 The Motion for Summary Judgment,which made the factual concessionis a

l2 terminating motion. Plaintiffs are now "out of court" without a trial on the merits. The

13 Plaintiffs only remedy now is an appealto the Ninth Circuit.

T4 The questionthis Court must decideis: Which motion was frivolously fited?

15 If the Defendantsbelieve that this materialfact ("that possessionof guns in the

16 context of a gun show may involve certain elementsof protected speech") is disputed,

t7 then they had no businessfiling a motion for summaryjudgment, they should have

1 8 requestedatrial setting conferenceand the matter could have been set for trial and/or
T 9 Alternative Dispute Resolution.
20 The Defendantshave made their record, and the Court has made its ruling. This

2t "Administrative Motion" should be denied.
