Today, we learned that on the 18th, the City of Pittsburgh filed an appeal to the Commonwealth Court of Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Judge James’ decision of October 29, 2019, holding that the City’s firearm ordinances were unlawful. This was after we previously learned of a conspiracy by Pittsburgh Mayor Peduto and Allegheny County Executive Fitzgerald to unseat Judge James because of the decision.
We will now await a briefing order by the Commonwealth Court and we do not anticipate a ruling by the court for at least 8-12 months.
