Lawyers, Guns and Money VIII

There’s more to report on District of Columbia v. Heller, the Second Amendment case currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. Dick Heller, the party who won in the court of appeals, filed his merit brief yesterday. The brief (pdf, 82 pages) is available here courtesy of SCOTUSblog. Despite the annoying insistence on calling the “well-regulated Militia” language of the Second Amendment a “preamble,” it looks pretty damn good at first blush.

The District’s reply brief is due in thirty days. In the interim we’ll see quite a few amicus curiae briefs filed on Heller’s behalf. Oral argument is scheduled for March 18.

Prior SCD coverage: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
