Amicus Brief on Behalf of Americans Against Gun Violence in U.S. Supreme Court Appeal
Farella filed an amicus brief on behalf of Americans Against Gun Violence in the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., et al., v. Kevin P. Bruen, et al. appeal pending before the United States Supreme Court. In this lawsuit, the petitioners have sought to strike down a longstanding New York law that requires individuals seeking to obtain an unrestricted license to carry concealed handguns in public to demonstrate proper cause.
