    Cook County files brief using improper SCOTUS quotes

    "ISRA Press Release:
    So-Called 'Electronic Errors' Mar Cook County's Defense of Gun Ban

    CHICAGO, Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):

    The Cook County State's Attorney's Appellate Court defense of the county gun ban (Wilson, et. al. v. Cook County, et. al.) got off to a bad start when briefs filed by the county before the First District Appellate Court were found to contain factual errors. More specifically, these factual errors included the misquoting of U.S. Supreme Court decisions in the DC v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago cases. (The ISRA was a Plaintiff in McDonald). When these errors were brought to light by the plaintiffs, the county hastily filed a motion to withdraw the erroneous briefs in favor of amended versions." - ISRA PRESS RELEASE - Plaintiff's Motion to Strike Defendant's brief
