Law Firm Of David G. Sigale Wins Permanent Injunction Against State Of Arkansas
The Law Firm of David G. Sigale has obtained a permanent injunction against the enforcement of an Arkansas statute barring non-citizens from carrying concealed firearms for self-defense.
In the case of Martin Pot v. Witt, the United State District Court Judge held that the statute violated the Fourteenth Amendment Equal Protection rights of the Plaintiffs. According to Sigale, “This is another example of how arbitrary discrimination against people who are lawfully in the Country, and who are law-abiding and have strong community ties to boot, will continue to be challenged in Court. The Plaintiffs in this case cannot be deprived of equal rights to self-defense.”
Law Firm Of David G. Sigale Files Second Amendment Suit Against State Of Arkansas
Attorney David G. Sigale has filed suit against the State of Arkansas, through its Director of the State Police. The suit is on behalf of Martin Pot, a lawful resident of the United States and a resident of Arkansas, and challenges the State’s ban on non-citizens from obtaining a concealed carry permit for self-protection.
Plaintiffs also include the Second Amendment Foundation of Bellevue, Washington. Plaintiffs are challenging the permit prohibition as violating Plaintiffs’ Second and Fourteenth amendment rights. This case follows on the heels of Sigale’s successful suits in New Mexico and Nebraska, which barred non-citizens from obtaining similar concealed-carry permits. In those suits, Sigale obtained injunctions against the offending statutes.
Sigale said: “The State of Arkansas is discriminating against an entire class of persons for no legitimate reason. Mr. Pot, a lawful-resident alien, simply wishes to exercise his right to self-defense in a manner enjoyed by all citizens in Arkansas. Since the Supreme Court years ago recognized Second Amendment rights, and Equal Protection rights, for lawful resident aliens, we expect the Courts will vindicate Mr. Pot’s rights in this case.”
