|U.S. SUPREME COURT REQUIRES NJ TO FILE
RESPONSE IN ANJRPC RIGHT TO CARRY APPEAL
High Court Considers Taking ANJRPC Appeal
February 19, 2019. Today, the U.S. Supreme Court required the State of New Jersey to file a brief in response to ANJRPC’s petition asking the High Court to hear its challenge to NJ’s carry laws. Under the Supreme Court’s order, the State of New Jersey is required to file papers by March 21, arguing why the High Court should not agree to hear ANJRPC’s appeal. NJ had previously ignored the appeal.
While the move is not a guarantee that the Supreme Court will agree to hear the appeal, the fact that the court is requiring NJ to take a position on ANJRPC’s request is significant, and signals that the court is not willing to take any action without first hearing from both sides.
By late April or early May, it is likely we will know whether the High Court will agree to take the case, decline to take the case, or hold the case while awaiting the outcome of a pending challenge to NYC’s firearm laws.
