All of the amicus briefs in support of petitioner will be due today. Additionally, the Brady Bunch will be filing a brief today. They noticed the parties that they would file a brief which they say would neither support petitioners or respondants.... and if you believe that, I have this bridge in Brooklyn that I can sell to you at a very attractive price... This site should provide updates on all briefs as they are filed today: http://www.chicagoguncase.com/case-filings/ My take on the briefs: Rutherford brief---nothing new... it is ok, but almost anyone could have written it. If you are pressed for time, do not bother. Paragon brief--- straight substantive due process argument... short and sweet. Heartland brief--- criminologist brief examinig the effects of the Chicago gun ban and emphasising that the police have no duty to protect.... short and sweet Appelants from Nordyke-- This is Don Kilmer's brief. It examines the proper level of review and discusses the sensitive places doctorine. Interesting, but not an issue in this case whatsoever and will have no impact on the decision. Cato Brief-- straight P or I argument. Good brief to try to read and compare with the Paragon brief to distinguish the two lines of argument being presented in McDonald.
