Federal Government Files for Certiorari to Supreme Court Over Its Loss in Second Amendment Case Binderup

The consolidated case overturned the application of U.S. Code 922(g)(1) in two cases where the convicted criminals' crimes were not serious enough to deny them Second Amendment rights, according to the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Justice Department last week filed for certiorari to the Supreme Court in an attempt to overturn a loss they suffered in September 2016 in the 3rd District Court of Appeals in a case that is now known as Lynch v. Binderup.

Binderup consolidated two cases, in each of which a plaintiff who felt his Second Amendment rights had been violated by the specific application of 922(g)(1) won in both district court and in an en banc opinion of the 3rd District Court of Appeals.
