Thumbs up 2018 Jan 18: CA2 oral arguments in Knife Rights’ NYC gravity knife lawsuit

Anyone know if this will be simulcast on Youtube on Thursday (the 18th)?

Quote:
Oral Argument has been scheduled for January 18, 2018, in our long-running Federal civil rights lawsuit against New York City and District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., which is currently under appeal.

Oral Argument before a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit is the last step before a ruling in the appeal of U.S. District Court Judge Katherine B. Forrest’s tortured decision against the plaintiffs. That decision fundamentally re-characterized the case in a way that did not reflect the case presented.

The lawsuit challenges the City’s practice of treating common folding knives as prohibited “gravity knives,” then arresting and prosecuting law-abiding knife owners at the current rate of approximately 6,000 per year and intimidating retailers into paying large cash sanctions to avoid prosecution. Under the City’s vague and subjective “wrist flick” test, it is impossible to know what knives will be treated as legal.

Knife Rights members and supporters are welcome to attend the Oral Argument in New York City. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 10:00 AM in Courtroom 1703 at the Thurgood Marshall U.S. Courthouse, 40 Foley Square, New York City.

Now we wait. I'd guess most likely between 6 and 9 months until CA2 releases their decision. (Unless KnifeRights gets cut off at the knees for some reason, or unless CA2 is dragging things out.)
