Supreme Court turns down Bloomberg suit appeal
Report here. The denial of cert. leaves in place rulings that dismissed NY City's suit against gun manufacturers.
Hat tip to reader Ambiguous Ambiguae...
Probably denied cert because they're too busy with appeals from criminal cases against the mayors who filed the suit . . .

More here ... actually two challenges to the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act were denied cert.
Among the cases denied were two that challenged the constitutionality of a 2005 federal law that put an end to a wave of lawsuits seeking to hold gun manufacturers and dealers liable for harms done by others with the guns those firms had sold. The cases were New York City v. Beretta USA (08-530) and Lawson v. Beretta USA (08-545). A federal appeals court in New York and the District of Columbia’s highest local court rejected the constitutional complaints.

IIRC it was a 2-1 decision. Who's the judge who deserves impeachment for incompetence? He/she obviously can't seem to read plain english.
