Weekly Update 01-29-2011

On 01-24-2011, in Georgia Carry v. State of Georgia (Church Carry), the district court upheld the State law that bans firearms at "churches or church functions." You can read the decision and Eugene Volokh's commentary, here.

On 01-24-2011, in Parker v. California (ammunition), the Judge issued his decision. The Judge permanently enjoins CA from enforcing CA penal code sections 12060, 12061, and 12318 (AB962). Read it here.

On 01-24-2011, in Heller v. D.C. (Heller II), the Brady Center was granted leave to file a supplemental amicus brief (attached). The appellants (Heller) requested to file a seperate reply brief to the amicus, and it was granted. This seems to be a trend with the Brady Center - file an amicus brief after all the other pertinent briefs have been filed. This one comes [u]after[/i] the orals and after the per curiam supplemental briefs.

On 01-26-2011, in Muller v. New Jersey, the defendant has filed their opposition to the plaintiffs MSJ (item #25-1 on the docket). Here, the defendant uses pre-Heller state cases and many of their own State cases (again, pre-Heller) to make their case to deny plaintiffs MSJ and advance their own MTD.

Two new lawsuits have been added:

West Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. v. City of Martinsburg: Filed on 01-24-2011 in the US District Court for the Northern District for West Virginia. Complaint is here. Challenges the constitutionality and statutory validity of a Martinsburg ordinance prohibiting carrying a firearm in city-owned buildings. James M. Mullins, Jr. attorney for the plaintiffs.

West Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. et al v. City of Charleston et al: Filed on 01-24-2011 in the US District Court for the Southern District for West Virginia. Challenges the constitutionality and statutory validity of ordinances in each of those cities prohibiting carrying a firearm on city-owned property. Additionally, WVCDL is challenging the constitutionality of Charleston's restrictive handgun sales ordinances. James M. Mullins, Jr. attorney for the plaintiffs.
