SCOTUS Directs NYC & DA to Respond to Plaintiffs’ Cert Petition

The U.S. Supreme Court has directed New York City and District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. to respond to plaintiffs’ petition for Writ of Certiorari in Knife Rights’ nearly eight-year-old civil rights lawsuit over New York City’s persecution of pocket knife owners.

The City and DA had waived their response, but at least one Justice has indicated a desire to hear from the Respondents before the petition is considered by the full court at a conference of the Justices. They have until March 29th to file their response, unless extended by the Court.

Earlier this month, three amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs were filed in support of plaintiffs’ petition.
