In Re Anthony M. (Cal. Ct. App. - Nov. 8, 2007)

Not too much from the Ninth Circuit or California Court of Appeal today. We'll see what the late afternoon brings from the latter.

In the meantime, here's a story you don't want to hear:

"On the afternoon of July 8, 2005, the minor, 14-year-old Anthony M., was alone at the home of his father’s girlfriend. He invited two friends, Christian D. and the victim, Daniel V., to come over to the house. When the two boys arrived, the minor retrieved a .38 caliber handgun from the master bedroom, placed one bullet in the bottom chamber of the gun’s cylinder, pointed the gun at Daniel while dancing around the room, and . . . ."

Needless to say, this fact pattern doesn't end well.
