I found this article interesting. The 9th Circuit issued a stay of its own decision while it considered the request by the California AG to reconsider the decision. The Orange County Sheriff is continuing to honor the original decision and is issuing carry permits.
"But some critics questioned why, with a stay in place, Sheriff Sandra Hutchens chose to adhere to the new, less-restrictive policy. The suspension, they argue, provides an opportunity to revert to the tougher permit requirements that Hutchens and other sheriffs in urban parts of California had maintained. Hutchens has said she would reconsider the new permit rules if a stay was issued."
“She has confused me completely,” said Charles Blek, president of the Orange County Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “There is … no reason for her to continue with the new policy.”
"Since Feb. 19, when Hutchens changed the local standard, Hallock said the Sheriff's Department has received more than 700 applications. But it is taking more than 90 days to issue permits, and Hallock said the department is hopeful a court decision will be rendered by then."
My guess is that the Sheriff read the decision, understands it, and is in good faith following it. Right now they are determining whether the AG even has legal standing to contest the decision.
