State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York
As part of its work with the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Sidley filed an amicus brief in support of the respondents in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York, a case that, at the time of this writing, is before the U.S. Supreme Court. The brief was filed on behalf of a group of influential social scientists who study the effects of firearm registration and licensing laws. The brief argues that the Supreme Court should continue to allow for the consideration of evidence when evaluating Second Amendment challenges to firearm restrictions.
