SCOTUS Grants Extension at Request of AG Healey
On Friday 10/25 – the last day available, the defendants in GOAL’s Worman v. Baker case filed for, and were granted a forty-day extension to respond to our legal team’s request to be heard by the United States Supreme Court, also known as a petition for writ of certiorari. This case challenges Massachusetts’s unconstitutional ban on commonly-owned, semi-automatic firearms as a violation of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, citing the Supreme Court rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago.
There have also been a number of notable groups who have filed amicus briefs in support of our case. See below for links to amicus briefs and more info.
