Bloomberg lawsuits beginning to look like a fiasco
The New York Sun has the story. A second dealer has filed a counter-suit in his home state, a NY dealer they charged with criminal offenses had to be let off with disorderly conduct (in most states, about a minor a misdemeanor as they have), they seized guns from that dealer but had to return them, the city has settled with two on terms that have them audited by a special master (whom the city has to pay)... oh, and a third dealer now says he's going to sue.
Bloomberg is trying to make the best of it, saying that the plea to disorderly conduct (what you'd get for being a noisy drunk) sends a "strong message" about how vigorously he's enforcing gun laws.
