Tuesday round-up

Kevin Daley reports at The Daily Caller that “[t]he Supreme Court will confront a range of gun rights cases in the coming months”:  “Matters now pending before the justices include a dispute over New York City’s gun transportation regulations, challenges to permitting laws in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and a lawsuit victims of the Sandy Hook massacre brought against gun giant Remington Arms.” At CNN, Ariane de Vogue reports that “[s]ince issuing landmark opinions in 2008 guaranteeing an individual right to have a gun, and a follow on opinion in 2010, the Supreme Court has largely dodged petitions testing the scope of the holding.”


  • At Dorf on Law, Michael Dorf explains why Arizona’s attempt “to sue members of the Sackler family and Purdue Pharma in the US Supreme Court … in the first instance is problematic.”

  • At Empirical SCOTUS, Adam Feldman analyzes the Supreme Court’s class-action docket between the 2010 and 2018 terms.
