Personal Injury & Medical Malpractice Cases in 2024

In a legal odyssey that could redefine Second Amendment jurisprudence, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to render a pivotal decision in the wake of their Bruen precedent. The case, U.S. v. Rahimi, challenges a federal statute restricting gun ownership for individuals under domestic violence restraining orders.

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, scrutinizing the historical analog test established in Bruen, questioned its application to America’s diverse gun regulation past. Plaintiff Zackey Rahimi contends that the statute infringes upon the Second Amendment, challenging a Fifth Circuit ruling that struck it down.

“I’m troubled by a history and traditions test that selectively counts only certain people’s history,” expressed Justice Jackson during oral arguments in November, injecting a sense of perplexity into the deliberations.

The law, championed by Letitia James, aims to hold gun industry members accountable for public harm. However, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, along with major players like Beretta USA Corp. and Glock Inc., asserts it violates the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.
