Knife Rights: Hearing Scheduled in San Diego for CA Switchblade Ban Lawsuit – Attend 7/4/24


Well-Known Member
The very first hearing on one of our post-Bruen lawsuits challenging a knife ban on Second Amendment grounds has been scheduled. The hearing on Knife Rights’ lawsuit challenging California’s ban on switchblade (automatic) knives with a blade 2-inches and greater will be on April 22nd at 10:00 AM before District Court Judge James E. Simmons, Jr., in Courtroom 4B of the Edward J. Schwartz United States Courthouse in San Diego (Click for directions).

Spectators are welcome; it could either be somewhat boring or quite interesting, depending on how the judge responds with questions of the attorneys. Note that it is not expected that the judge will issue a decision at the hearing, that could take months.

If attending, please dress appropriately (business casual at a minimum), and note that you will have to go through security, so leave your knives in your car or at home and your cell phone, if you want to bring it, will need to be checked with security as they are not permitted. Allow a little extra time for getting through security.
