Re: Omar Noureldin

Omar Noureldin was interviewed about why the Supreme Court is tackling so many big issues at a time. "I don’t think it’s a coincidence, with this conservative super-majority, that they were willing to take up (the) gun case,” he said. “There have been a number of litigants in the conservative legal movement that brought these cases in anticipation of this current moment.”
