Ah, Californicated, you never fail to amaze

WUT? CA Supreme Court says the issue of the constitutionality of the law was not before it because no constitutional challenge was made.

WTH?  Oh yeah:
Attorneys for the state acknowledged in court documents that microstamping technology is “emerging,” but they said lawmakers often enact laws to force industries to innovate. They warned a ruling in favor of gun makers could take away that power.

Constitutional challenges have to be specifically plead in my state. I'm not surprised to see the same rule elsewhere.

This is why care must be taken in drafting Petitions/Complaints.

I call it the Doc-Oc/Ironman school of law, or comic book science extended to the law. With all the Marvel Comics movies out lately, I'm not surprised that people think this way, but I am dismayed that such thought-rot has extended to the California Supreme Court.
