Earlier today, the Effingham County courts dismissed all of Tom DeVore’s lawsuits re: the PICA gun and magazine ban. The associated temporary restraining orders (TROs) dissolved with that dismissal.
Mr. DeVore issued a press release which included this:
Having said that, the IL Supreme Court’s decision that Caulkins failed to meet his burden does not bar my clients from being able to proceed to make their case that they are in fact similarly situated to all or part of the exempt class. The decision for dismissal by the circuit court in Effingham county was premature and in error as my clients have a right to make their case. The circuit court dismissed our client’s case without even so much as a hearing on the matter. As such, we will file a motion to reconsider immediately. In the event the motion to reconsider should fail, we will appeal to the Appellate Court and eventually the Supreme Court. We have evidence to prove the exempt class has nothing to do with training and our clients have a right to present it. Moreover, we will not waive our procedural constitutional violation of the three-readings clause, which Caulkins foolishly did, and we will present this argument to the Supreme Court as well.
While Mr. DeVore filed for the court to reconsider, that’s a longshot to put it kindly.
