Brady’s Lawyers Booted From Badger Case

Two attorneys from the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence have been forced to withdraw from a Milwaukee court case after the group posted information on its website that the judge in the case had ruled inadmissible.

Brady staff attorneys Jonathan Lowy and Alla Lefkowitz sue gun stores for legally selling guns later used in crimes, lawsuits specifically prohibited by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Firearms Act (which NRA helped pass). Their zeal to drive lawful gun stores out of business led them to act not only against the judge’s direction, but also in clear violation of the legal ethics of Wisconsin, New York and D.C., their states of licensure.

Perhaps for those who think it’s right to hold lawful citizens responsible for the unlawful acts of others, and to drive them out of business with massive legal fees, that seemed a good idea at the time.
