Late yesterday, Chief Counsel Joshua Prince, assisted by Lawyer Dillon Harris, secured two monumental Orders by the Third Circuit granting reconsideration Williams v. Lawyer Normal, 19-2694, vacating its and the district courtroom’s prior choices discovering that Mr. Williams couldn’t carry a profitable Second Modification as-applied problem to his putative federal firearms prohibition stemming from a second DUI, and remanding the matter to the district courtroom for reconsideration in mild of Bruen v. NYSRPA, 142 S. Ct. 2111 (2022).
Upon it being remanded to the Japanese District of Pennsylvania, because of Decide Robert F. Kelly now not being a choose of the courtroom, it was reassigned to Decide John M. Younge, a Trump appointee.
We now await additional course from Decide Younge, as as to if he’ll merely problem a call or whether or not he’ll search further briefing. Whereas the result for Mr. Williams and others who’re equally located is just not but identified, primarily based on the Bruen evaluation and there not being any custom on this Nation of stripping people of their Second Modification rights because of DUI on the time of our founding, it could seem that Mr. Williams must be profitable.
