Please see the most recent communication from Judge Skretny regarding the SAFE Act proceedings. Please do not read anything pro or con into this communication it is common practice to make decisions based on the briefs rather than verbal arguments; that’s why we hired the best attorneys and spent $426,000 to date on the suit. No matter what the decision this will be appealed by one of the parties and wind up in the Supreme Court. We will prevail.

New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. et al v. Cuomo et al
139(No document attached)
On November 22, 2013, Plaintiffs requested a hearing on the pending motions. .
But given the breadth and thoroughness of the briefing by the parties and amici already submitted to this Court, it is prepared to resolve the pending motions without a hearing. Further, this Court is fully cognizant of the impending deadlines instituted by the SAFE Act and the possible effects those deadlines may have on the public and government administration. Therefore, considering both that the issues have been comprehensively briefed and that various deadlines imposed by the Act will soon take effect, this Court will issue a decision on the merits in advance of the deadline dates.
Issued by William M. Skretny, Chief Judge on 12/23/2013.
