U.S. Supreme Court ignores gun cases
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court declined to tinker with the Second Amendment, ignoring petitions from the District of Columbia on its Tuesday orders list.

The court didn't explain its decision but Scotusblog reported justices may want more time to consider the petitions or reworking the questions it is willing to review.

The District wants the court to determine how the Second Amendment should be defined (District of Columbia vs. Heller) and a cross petition seeks a ruling on who can challenge laws before they are actively enforced (Parker vs. District of Columbia). The justices are expected to look at the cases again next week.

The court did agree to hear a case involving how much can be recovered for paralegal services where the winning party is seeking attorneys fees (Richlin Security Service vs. Chertoff).

The court also directed the U.S. solicitor general to provide an opinion on whether an immediate appeal can be filed if a federal judge rejects a government request to dismiss a case against a foreign government (Exxon Mobil Corp. vs. Doe I, et al).
