"DC District Court judge Reggie Walton has finally ruled in the 9-year old
court case pitting the model rocketry community against the US Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The ruling is a 'slam dunk' for
the rocketry community, stating that the BATFE ignored scientific evidence
and overstepped its bounds (
http://www.rocketryplanet.com/content/view/2788/30/ )by classifying ammonium
perchlorate composite propellant (APCP) as an 'explosive.' Effective
immediately, the BATFE has no legal jurisdiction over hobby rocket motors,
and a federal Low Explosives User's Permit will no longer be needed in order
to purchase APCP motors. The full text of the Judge's decision is reproduced
at the link."  Slashdot.org 3/16/09
