ARIE S. FRIEDMAN AND THE ILLINOIS STATE RIFLE ASSOCIATION
CITY OF HIGHLAND PARK
This is a case in Illinois that is very similar to ours here in Connecticut. So similar in fact, that many of our lawyers are involved in that case as well; including lead attorney Dave Thompson.
This case is a little ahead of ours. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals already issued a divided ruling supporting Highland Park’s gun bans a few months ago. Gun owners in IL are now petitioning the Supreme Court to review the lower court’s ruling. This is certainly a case for us to follow closely.
For those interested, we have the full 228 page petition here for download. Most of it is applicable to CT’s gun bans.
