What case is this?

What gun case is this? I didn't realize there was a DC v. Heller III. What court is this in front of?

Gun Owners of America Defending the Second Amendment in Court

Published on Monday, September 15, 2014


Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- Gun Owners of America submitted a vital amicus brief in Heller v. DC on Tuesday — in a case that is otherwise known as Heller III.

This case has national implications, as the courts continue to chip away at the Second Amendment and the DC v. Heller decision from 2008.

So you're saying that DC v. Heller is being heard again?




And who's hearing it, SCOTUS? Why would they rehear it?

I didn't see anything doing a quick search of SCOTUSblog. The case number, 14-7071, did not show up on a docket search. I did find this, Appellants' Brief, with Google. It looks like the Appellants' Brief was filed on 2 September.

The article linked to reads like a GOA press release. It calls the GOA amicus brief "vital", but an amicus brief is really only "vital" if the Court thinks it is.

In any case, the GOA amicus brief may be read here.

Except the article doesn't really say anything of substance -- hence the OP's question.

The first entry for 'Heller III' in Google returns:
http://www.hellerfoundation.com/about/heller-iii/

Quote:
Dick Heller is a paid, trained, certified, gun-issued, & badged (signed by the police chief), Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) with limited powers of arrest while at his duty station. All of this more than qualifies him under the laws of Congress to be classified to be one of their special Full Time Concealed Carry officers, anywhere in the country . . . except the District of Columbia say the city politicians.
and

Quote:
Heller – 3 is not yet in the courts. A letter was sent to the DC police chief showing that Heller’s position is congruent with H.R.218 law

and with intention to Concealed Carry a certain serial no. Charter revolver as a pedestrian at midnight on his way home from work

It entirely pertains to LEOSA.

Really now? You post a link to a web page dated 2012?
  • The case referenced in the article linked to by the OP is Supreme Court case number 14-7071, based on the GOA amicus brief linked to in that article.

  • In post 4 I posted a link to the Appellants' opening brief in that case. It was filed about 2 weeks ago.

  • It has nothing whatsoever to do with the LEOSA.

Thank you.


This case is still a mystery.
