No Decision Yet on Rahimi Cert Petition From the U.S. Supreme Court, Everytown Law Responds
New York, NY – Today, the United States Supreme Court released the order list from its June 22 conference and the Court has not yet responded to the Solicitor General’s urgent request for the Court to grant certiorari in United States v. Rahimi. Based on prior practice, the Court is likely to announce additional grants for the upcoming term at the end of this week, before the summer recess. The Court must do so and grant certiorari in Rahimi.
In response to today’s news, Everytown Law, the litigation arm of Everytown for Gun Safety, issued the following statement:
“The Fifth Circuit’s extreme and reckless decision in United States v. Rahimi is a death sentence for women and families,” said Janet Carter, Senior Director of Issues and Appeals at Everytown Law. “We are deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court did not grant certiorari in Rahimi in last week’s conference. Lives are on the line. The Supreme Court must act before it goes into recess for the summer.”
