Don't know if this was posted. What a mess this all is....Why did this even go to this judge if anything she ruled on is not valid...How stupid is all of this. Why does this court exist. WTF.....

Rochester, NY -- A federal judge's ruling this week rejecting part of New York's recent gun control law has revealed a seldom-discussed quirk of the state's legal system.
Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley told WHAM 1180's Bob Lonsberry on Friday that the ruling has no effect on the state law because -- unlike other states -- New York state courts don't recognize low-level federal rulings.
According to Doorley, the debate over the state's 7-round limit in 10-round magazines will have to be settled either in the state courts or in the U.S. Supreme Court. For now, the limit remains the law.
She says, however, the judge's ruling is "persuasive," meaning the other courts may give it significant weight.
Her interpretation echoes the one expressed on Lonsberry's show Thursday by Cayuga County District Attorny Jon Budelmann. Earlier this week, the Onondaga D.A. publicly expressed the view that the limit had been thrown out by the judge, but only in the counties in the western New York federal district.

For future reference, black text is a bad idea, makes it hard to read and easy to ignore. Search function is your friend, and your reigning monarch Andy has graciously told his serfs that the ruling stands.
