PA Supreme Court Denies Lower Merion Township’s Petition for Allocatur Involving Its Illegal Firearm Regulations

As our viewers are aware from my prior article on January 27, 2017, after the the Commonwealth Court issued its decision in Firearm Owners Against Crime (FOAC), et al. v. Lower Merion Township, where it held that Lower Merion Township’s preclusion of firearms and discharge in township parks was unlawful, Lower Merion Township filed a Petition for Allowance of Appeal with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which was docketed at 36 MAL 2017.

Today, the PA Supreme Court denied Lower Merion’s Petition for Allowance, therefore making final the Commonwealth Court’s decision in FOAC, et al. v. Lower Merion Township.

    Interesting, they denied the petition to appeal, but permitted Philadelphia to file an Amicus Curiae brief in support of the petition which they had denied.
