LBS HOMEWORK SHEET Name of Case in Proper Legal Citation FormatSN McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S.3025 (2010) Who is/are the plaintiff(s) (i.e. consumer, company, employee, government) and what type of legal relief is/are the plaintiff(s) seeking? Plaintiff are Otis McDonald et al. seeking certiorari after their case was dismissed and affirmed by a higher court. Originally, plaintiffs were seeking the right to keep firearms in their private residences for protection against intruders, which was not allowed under Chicago’s gun possession laws. Plaintiffs believe their right to bear arms under the second amendment is being infringement upon under such Chicago gun laws. What legal question must the court decide, and what is the common law rule, constitutional provision or statute that the question will turn on? The legal question here is whether the city of Chicago and the specific residential district of Oak Park’s legislation against possession infringes upon the second amendment rights of the plaintiffs and whether the amendment in question can be applicable to States individually.
