West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Inc. v. Morrissey

Everytown Law represents the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence in a constitutional challenge to West Virginia’s 2018 “guns in parking lots” law, W. Va. Code § 61-7-14(d), which forces businesses to allow guns in their parking areas and threatens them with lawsuits and civil penalties if they fail to comply. The law also forbids businesses from asking if an employee or visitor has a concealed weapon in their vehicle, from requiring employees to keep their guns off company property, or from “taking any action against” someone who has brought a gun into the parking area.

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.
