Gabbard v. Madison Local School District

Everytown Law represents a group of concerned parents in a lawsuit against the Board of Education and superintendent of the Madison Local School District in Butler County, Ohio, challenging the district's decision to arm school employees with minimal training. The lawsuit alleges that the board’s resolution to authorize armed staff in district schools violates an Ohio law requiring that school employees who “go armed while on duty” be trained and certified as peace officers. The suit seeks an injunction to block the district from arming staff without the training required by law, as well as a court order requiring disclosure of policies and procedures for arming staff.

State of Washington, et al. v. United States Department of State, et al.

Everytown filed this brief in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle, urging the court to continue blocking the Trump Administration’s Decision to permit the distribution of downloadable guns. Everytown has developed various legal theories to challenge the State Department’s decision to secretly remove automated files for 3-D printed guns from its jurisdiction and to prohibit Defense Distributed from posting such files online. These legal theories formed the basis for three ongoing lawsuits brought by attorney generals throughout the country, including a successful personal injury suit in the Washington state case.

Everytown for Gun Safety v. ATF

Everytown Law filed a lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in the Southern District of New York seeking release of aggregated trace data pertaining to firearms used in suicide.

Wollschlaeger v. Governor, State of Florida (En Banc)

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America filed this brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit to urge the full court to correct a fundamentally flawed decision by a three-judge panel. The panel upheld a Florida law that prohibits doctors from speaking with their patients about firearm safety. This brief urges the full court to reverse that decision and strike down the law, because it interferes with patients’ right to receive truthful, non-misleading health and safety information from their doctors.

Wollschlaeger v. Governor, State of Florida (Second Brief)

This is the second amicus brief that Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America has filed in the 11th Circuit in this case. This brief again urges the full 11th Circuit to re-hear a case challenging a Florida law that prohibits doctors from speaking with their patients about firearm safety. Previously, a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit upheld the law; this brief urges the full court to reconsider that decision.
