Can you explain what the reply brief is, exactly?
A reply brief is a vehicle for Gura to address all of the errors, lies, misrepresentations and stupid arguments propounded by Chicago and Chicago's amici. It is due 30 days after Chicago filed its brief, which is today and its scope is limited to matters raised by Chicago (and amici) in their previously submitted briefs.
No, after the reply is filed by Gura, the briefing for the case is closed and we set our alarm clocks to March 2, 2010 when the next scheduled event is oral argument.
Just posted, I haven't even read yet.
but you missed this:
Funny, just reading the intro is very entertaining. I guess when you so much in the right it's easy to make the other party look like idiots.
Citizen's United cite. Just to let them know he was on his game I guess.
OK, just finished the Gura brief. As always, it was a great piece of writing and well-argued in his typical, direct fashion. I liked the bit that enforcing the Constitution was also law enforcement.
Then a footnote just in case the Justices were not convinced:
Chicago's law department rides to work on the short bus. They're shockingly incompetent. They settle the most transparently fraudulent police brutality cases, while fighting cases that are a slam dunk for the plaintiff, regularly incurring multi-million dollar judments. They couldn't find their own behinds with a phased array radar and a search party the size of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.
Haven't read it yet
I haven't read it yet, but I'm curious if there was mention of the INTENT of the ILLINOIS constitution, which is a paper tiger in practice...
Help a guy out here.
In my industry (engineering) a state that reserves 'police power' is reserving the right to make up additional laws as it sees fit, and can pass that power on to municipal governments. Is the term being used by Illinois to do the same, effectively keeping the authority to make up gun laws as it sees fit?
"You citizens have the right to be armed, but the State will change that from time to time for it's own benefit. Learn to live with it."
Perhaps that is the importance of incorporation to the US Constitution, eh?
Got that day off to listen to the oral arguments on C-Span...my boss was a little surprised WHY I wanted the day off...
I liked this.
