Kachalsky Has Cert Denied By SCOTUS

In the list of orders issued today by the US Supreme Court was an order of certiorari denied for Kachalsky et al v. Cacace et al. This was the case from New York which challenged the Sullivan Law and its restrictions on carry.

As an article in Reuters notes, just because the Supreme Court didn't grant cert to Kachalsky, doesn't mean they won't do it in another carry case. The twin Madigan cases from Illinois still could be appealed from the 7th Circuit as could Woollard from the 4th Circuit. As Sebastian notes, there could be a number of reasons the Court didn't want to take up this case. One of his commenters notes that Adam Winkler speculated the Court didn't want to take up the issue while the gun issue is in the news and before Congress.

It could be. 

Still I'm a little disappointed that the Supreme Court didn't take up the issue now regardless of why they didn't. It would have been interesting to have been a fly on the wall while the Justices were debating whether to take the case.

  1. That it would have been... Sooner or later they ARE going to have to take one!
