The Emergency Petition is here.  San Bern    My bet is it will be assigned to Judge Meredith Jury in Riverside.  9th Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kosinski picks the judge but presumably he will ask Chief Judge Peter Carroll who will recommend Meridith Jury.  She is the senior judge in Riverside and has experience with chapter 9 given all the appeals in the Vallejo case.
