Lawyers, Guns and Money V

The District of Columbia’s merit brief for District of Columbia v. Heller, in which the U.S. Supreme Court will for the first time in almost seventy years address the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms, is due on Friday.

Against that backdrop, Tony Mauro at BLT reports that D.C. special counsel Alan Morrison, who was slated to argue the District’s case before the Supreme Court, got fired today. Morrison, a veteran Supreme Court lawyer who earned his wings working with Ralph Nader’s Public Citizen Litigation Group, appears to be a casualty of an internecine feud between the recently-resigned D.C. Attorney General  and the mayor’s special counsel.

Prior SCD coverage of the case is available here, here, here and here.
