Alim, et al. v. City of Seattle, et al.

7.20.2018

SEATTLE, Wash. – Following the City of Seattle’s passage of an ordinance requiring responsible gun storage, the NRA and the Second Amendment Foundation, along with two individuals, sued the City, seeking a declaratory judgment that the ordinance is invalid. Everytown for Gun Safety’s Litigation Team agreed to represent the City on a pro bono basis, along with Orrick LLP. The City moved to dismiss the complaint, arguing that the plaintiffs do not have standing and the dispute is not yet ripe. The motion to dismiss is available below. The Honorable Barbara Linde agreed and granted the motion to dismiss. The plaintiffs submitted a motion for reconsideration, which was also denied.
