City of Missoula v. Timothy C. Fox

April 11, 2018

Everytown Law is representing the City of Missoula in its lawsuit against the Attorney General of Montana as part of the city’s efforts to enforce a public safety ordinance requiring background checks on unlicensed gun sales. The lawsuit asks a Montana state court to overrule a determination by Attorney General Timothy C. Fox that the ordinance is preempted by state law. In October, the court ruled in favor the City, clearing the way for Missoula to enforce its firearms background check ordinance. The case is currently on appeal to the Montana Supreme Court. Everytown Law is co-counsel with the Missoula firm of Boone Karlberg P.C. and the Missoula City Attorney.
