A Small Victory in the Fight Against a Bad Law

April 17th, 2012

I’m one of the named plaintiffs in a lawsuit seeking to have the laws commonly known as 2257 and 2257A declared to be unconstitutional.

The suit was first filed in 2009.

In 2010 the judge hearing the case dismissed the suit at the request of the government.

We appealed that dismissal to the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

The appeal was argued before that Appeals Court in January 2012.

On April 16 the Appeals Court ruled in our favor and the suit will go to trial in Federal Court in Philadelphia.  No date yet for the trial, but I expect it will happen this year.  I expect to be a witness at that trial.

No telling how long the whole process will take, but this is progress toward removing this unconstitutional law from the books.
