Never mind.. guess hes kicking *** in the beer front.

And Chicago, and in the future all the traitorous, civil rights-violating government bastards that he sues and refuse to pay when they lose.

Recently he was arguing against the gun range prohibition in Chicago also.

I have heard he has a dozen active cases. He's busy working for all of us.

Guns:
Heller Fees
McDonald Fees
Ezell v. City of Chicago - Gun Ranges are fundamental 2A activity and can't be banned
Dearth v. Holder - US Citizens who reside abroad can't be barred from buying guns.
Peņa v. Cid - California Handgun Roster unconstitutional
Richards v. Prieto - Carry in California
Palmer v. DC - Carry in DC
Kachalsky v. Cacace - Carry in NY
Woolard v. Sheridan - Carry in MD
Hightower v. Boston - Carry in MA
Bateman v. Perdue - "Carry" in NC

1A:
Oberwetter v. Hillyard Premits to dance quietly at Jefferson Memorial unconstitutional
LNC v. FEC - Campaign finance limits unconstitutional as applied to dead people (Zombie speech!)
Flying Dog Beer v. Michigan - Art on and name of beer protected speech.

So he's busy. I know of at least 3 more cases coming on various fronts and I think there are more. This also ignores all the Amicus he files around the country in other cases and a couple of SAF cases where he isn't lead counsel but is involved.

The statuses are generally kept current on the CGF wiki: http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Litigation_Past_and_Present

I think Ezell is the only one. The rest are still in district court.

Dearth is on appeal also but on standing and not on the 2A issue and will have to cycle back around.

I don't think there are more than a few lawyers who can do as much nothing as Alan.
