7:38 Peter Kuck litigation update
Peter Kuck's 7-year denial of due process case is heading back to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals
Won last time, sent back to District Court. District Court says a 7-8 month waiting period for a hearing on pistol permit denials/revocations is not unreasonable.
7:43 CCDL and CCS Litigation Update - Brian Stapleton
Finalizing Motion for Summary Judgement, which is reason for missing last meeting.
Complaint in lawsuit that law is unconstitutionally vague.
Filed for a preliminary injunction.
Alfred Covello selected a Judge. Senior status judge.
Judge Covello has chosen to move the case along quickly.
Contrasting with NY SAFE Act lawsuit (Judge taking more time reviewing things) Possibly 24 month at the trial level in the NY case.
Judge Covello has issued a fast-tracked scheduling order.
State asked for extension of time (this is common)
State has until Oct 11th to oppose Summary Judgement Motion
November 11th to respond
December for oral arguments if either party requests (we certainly will)
No matter which way the Judge decides in December, the losing party will certainly appeal to the 2nd Circuit.
Thanks for coming to picnic

Hunting and Fishing Show is Mid-February
