The Supreme Court opened its October term today and released a number of orders. Included in this was an order denying New York City’s suggestion of mootness in NYSRPA v. City of New York
NY STATE RIFLE & PISTOL, ET AL. V. NEW YORK, NY, ET AL.
The Respondents’ Suggestion of Mootness is denied. The question of mootness will be subject to further consideration at
oral argument, and the parties should be prepared to discuss it.
This is good news for those of us wanting the case to be decided.
I asked the Law Department of the City of New York if they had any comment on the denial of the Suggestion of Mootness. Here is what I received from their press secretary.
We look forward to addressing the issues at the December oral argument.
I guess that is as close to saying “No Comment” as you can get without actually saying it.
