From the Attorneys Stamboulieh and Ward:
Hollis v. Lynch, et al. update
The district court dismissed Hollis’ complaint on August 7, 2015 holding that Hollis does not have standing to bring his challenge to the machinegun ban and the National Firearms Act. This opinion is odd as the court in Watson v. Lynch, et al. held that the Plaintiff in that similar case had standing to bring his challenge. The court additionally dismissed Hollis’ Equal Protection and Due Process claims.
Hollis appealed the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on August 18, 2015 and we are currently waiting for a briefing schedule to issue from the Court.
