Judge Issues TRO, Enjoining Enforcement

by | Apr 17, 2008

No sooner do I make a post about Lynne Abraham, Esq.’s view on Philadelphia’s newly enacted gun laws do I learn that the Hon. Jane Cutler Greenspan issued a temporary restraining order (“TRO”) to block enforcement in National Rifle Association, et al. v. City of Philadelphia, et al.

A TRO is issued pending a permanent injunction hearing to maintain the status quo. However, a TRO can only be issued where there is a showing that there is likelihood of success on the merits of a case, which means that the judge in this case is already leaning towards striking down the city’s new gun-control laws.
