A lawsuit filed in federal court over Washington’s new gun laws was dismissed Monday by the parties who filed it. The suit was filed by the NRA, the Second Amendment Foundation and several individuals, including some from Spokane. Spokane attorneys Matthew Albrecht and David DeWolf were attorneys for the plaintiffs. The dismissal says "No party having filed an answer or motion for summary judgment, Plaintiffs hereby voluntarily dismiss this action without prejudice." The suit was filed against the state of Washington and Attorney General Robert Ferguson. It claimed the law approved by voters infringed on the Second and Fourteenth Amendments because they infringed on the purchase, sale and ownership of firearms. It’s not clear what this means for the legal challenges going forward. We’ll update you with new information as we get it. Get your weather forecast from people that actually live in your community.
