Dick Cheney, and the gov'ts amicus in Heller
Part of his autobiography to be released tomorrow. The Circuit Court of Appeals had struck down the DC law; the government wound up filing an amicus that argued the Supreme Court should send the case back to the District Court, to develop factual bases for a great number of issues. That is, the government was doing as much as it could to delay and complicate the case, while at the same time saying that it really did support an individual right. Cheney says he opposed this, and when Justice Department went ahead, he signed onto a legislators' amicus (in his role as president of the Senate) that did go all-out for an individual right.
