    Could someone say when the next step of the thr lawsuit is?

    Could anyone say when the next news might be arriving?

    It is now Mid April. More news in June? August? November?

    My guess is he's referring to McDonald vs Chicago.

    Also curious about forth-coming news.

    It has been a while.

    thr.us vs thr.org

    Just trying to get a vague idea when something might happen next.

    The decision should come down in the end of June.

    According to the calendar on the USSC web site, it looks like June 28 is the last day of the session. Heller was the last decision releases on the last day; I expect the same from the McDonald case.

    I reckon I guessed wrong. I forgot all about that "goings on". For the latest in .us vs. .org, look in "General Discussions". There is a post titled...

    It took me a minute to realize there were 2 different conversations.

    Any idea when something will happen on this topic?

    "...thr.us vs thr.org..." That is none of our business.

    The court has not set a trial date. The discovery period is closed. Multiple motions have been filed. The motions pending before the court could resolve some, but not all, of the issues. There is no fixed timeline at this point.

    So, does anyone have a sense of how long this could go?

    Are we talking more likely months or years?

    A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns.

    Henry,
    I understand your ruffled feathers and am very empathetic, but I am also sure you are aware not all lawyers are on the side of the law.

    For example, it is mostly lawyers in Washington, D.C. and the state capitols around the country that are knowingly and willingly stealing our freedoms. Add to the mix some ridiculous court decisions (like Kelo) and your run-of-the-mill ambulance chasers with their television and billboard adds and the legal profession often ends up with an image problem in many peoples' minds which is on par with prostitutes and used car salesmen.

    I think the national BAR association and lawyers in general might find it beneficial to spend more time and effort defining, refining and enforcing a Lawyers Code of Ethics among members of the BAR. The gang currently in charge in Washington, D.C. these days isn't doing your profession any favors, either.

    JMHO, but much of the law profession's image problem is self inflicted.

    So, how many men with guns can a lawyer with a briefcase steal? Two hundred? Where does he keep them all?

    It's only 99% that give the rest of us a bad name.

    Many (if not most) polititions may have law degrees, but they are not really acting in the role of a lawyer when they legislate away our rights and freedoms. There certainly are others, acting as lawyers for various agencies, who are guilty of what you describe.

    Neither is really the subject of this thread. kev3849's statement just seems a bit out of place in this thread.

    My "ruffled feathers" come from the condemnation of all lawyers -- until you need one. Then that lawyer is, of course, honest, ethical, and on the side of justice. Like those who decry guns, but then call for a cop when they are in need of armed protection.

    I have pretty thick skin and am not offended. Just trying to expose the statement for the overgeneralization that it is.

    Agreed and my point exactly with one proviso:
    They KNOW better, which is what gets under my skin.

    On the other hand, my life is quite busy. It sounds like checking back 2x a month might be adequate?

    Henry Bowman,
    If it's any consolation. I loved the last lawyer I retained, some years ago.
    (Around the time of 911)...
    He fought to give the best gift a man can have.
    Custody of my only son.
    That lawyer guy rocks.

    As I'm sure you do too.
    I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks.

    When the matter is settled, it'll be big news, and it won't be concealed.

    Shakespear "Henry the Eighth" (?) - "First, you kill all the lawyers, ..."
    I post this little tid-bit to indicate the looooong term distrust of lawyers, not to further disparage lawyers - this is historical. I have a news item in a 1906 newspaper, which, though far longer, says about the same thing. And then you have a (national) lawyer that is trying to parse what "Is, Is", and winds up getting disbarred. Is there no reason to give lawyers a bad time? There is much more, but you get the idea. However, (disclaimer) I do have three lawyers on retainer and working at present.
