Court Reinstates Challenge to Foster Parent Carry
May 17, 2023 -- The Court of Appeals of Wisconsin has vacated a local court judgment ratifying a ban on foster parents' carrying firearms in the presence of foster children. Foster parents in Wisconsin represented by the firm had challenged the ban, as well as a requirement to store all firearms at home unloaded and locked, separately from the ammunition. The Circuit Court of Washington County granted summary judgment to the State and Washington County, but the Court of Appeals vacated the circuit court's opinion and instructed the circuit court to consider the Supreme Court of the United States' opinion in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen. The case is remanded to the circuit court for further proceedings.
