LAW FIRM OF DAVID G. SIGALE WINS PERMANENT INJUNCTION AGAINST STATE OF ARKANSAS

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.”
