Supreme Court Reinstates Felon in Possession Case

September 6, 2023 -- Today, the Supreme Court of Georgia reinstated a case that had been dismissed by the Superior Court of Fulton County. In the case, John Monroe Law, P.C. had challenged Georgia's law banning felons from possessing firearms as applied to a firm client who had been convicted of a non-violent white collar crime (health care fraud). The superior court dismissed the federal constitutional challenge, ruling that such a challenge cannot be brought against the State of Georgia. It also dismissed the state constitutional challenge, ruling that Georgia's right to keep and bear arms is subject to "reasonable regulation" under the State's "police powers." The Supreme Court vacated both rulings and ordered the superior court to consider both claims again.
