It is fitting that my 400th post deals with the first post-McDonald decision case – Bateman et al v. Perdue et al – as this blog really started to take off with my post on that case.
On Monday, Alan Gura and Andrew Tripp filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina in the Bateman case. They ask that as a matter of law that the Court find North Carolina’s state of emergency law violates the Second and Fourteenth Amendments.
I will have a much longer and detailed update on this after I have time to fully read and digest the motion. However, I did want to get the news out that this important new motion had been filed in this case.
