City of Missoula v. Timothy C. Fox

Everytown Law represents 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 2018, the court ruled in favor of the City, clearing the way for Missoula to enforce its firearms background check ordinance. However, the case was appealed and on October 22, 2019, the Montana Supreme Court reversed the District Court's decision and found that Missoula's ordinance requiring background checks on all gun sales was preempted by state law.
