NJ Attorney General LOSES in the Supreme Court - a WIN for the 1st and 2nd Amendments

Posted by Keith G. Langer | Mar 29, 2021 | 0 Comments

The Second Amendment Foundation notched with its lawsuit against the NJ Attorney General, who forbade the dissemination of material on printing 3-D firearms. His appeal to the Supreme Court failed when SCOTUS refused to hear his appeal. That means case will proceed in Texas, where plaintiff Defense Distributors is located.

The Fifth Circuit ruled unanimously that AG Grewal had harmed Defense Distributors by his efforts to prevent distribution of DD's materials related to the 3D printing of firearms. That made Grewel subject to the jurisdiction of the Texas courts, where. Defense Distributed is headquartered.

“It's not every day you beat a state attorney general at the Supreme Court,” observed SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, “especially when he had been supported by other anti-gun state attorneys general from New York, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Washington, and the District of Columbia. This is a huge victory.”

Indeed, it is - another one for SAF.

Your Time May Be Limited!

If you are a defendant in a civil suit, you have a specific period of time in which to file an answer. Failure to do so can result in a default judgment being issued against you. Failure to timely submit responses to discovery requests can also negatively affect your case. Those named as defendants in criminal cases via clerk magistrate or “show cause” hearings must appear, or the complaint will issue against them. Those seeking to appeal a negative action, such as a firearms license denial or revocation, denial of a permit, or losing a case at trial, all have specific time periods in which to act. Do not lose your rights by inertia or delay.

Act Now!

The law is an area in which inertia can have very negative consequences: The loss of rights and remedies. It is unlikely that your problem will just “go away” - act now to protect yourself and preserve your options.
