The Supreme Court has now dealt a major blow to the schemes of an anti-gun attorney general in New Jersey who is currently locked in a legal battle with Defense Distributed, a company specializing in 3-D printed firearms.

The Supreme Court denied a petition from the New Jersey Attorney General, Gurbir Grewal, which sought to attempt to evade the jurisdiction of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in an ongoing First Amendment case that has been brought against him by Defense Distributed.


As Ammoland reports:

The Fifth Circuit had ruled unanimously that Grewal, because of his efforts to prevent the distribution of materials related to the 3D printing of firearms, was subject to the jurisdiction of the Texas courts. Defense Distributed is headquartered in Texas.

“It’s not every day you beat a state attorney general at the Supreme Court,” observed SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, “especially when he had been supported by other anti-gun state attorneys general from New York, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Washington, and the District of Columbia. This is a huge victory.”

The Defense Distributed case has always been about the First Amendment, Gottlieb observed. He recalled how Grewal had moved to dismiss the SAF/Defense Distributed lawsuit filed in the Western District of Texas “for lack of personal jurisdiction.” But the Fifth Circuit appellate ruling placed Grewal’s efforts squarely under that circuit’s jurisdiction and the SCOTUS allowed that to stand.

The suit stems from Grewal’s previous attempt to attempt to prevent individuals in New Jersey from downloading or possessing instructions from Defense Distributed on how to print firearms in a 3-D printer, an action which is almost certainly a violation of the First Amendment.
