A judge just dismissed a case against New York’s Green Light law because the law is legal.
“In other words, the Court is not persuaded that the case law Plaintiff relies upon regarding preenforcement challenges based on a credible threat of prosecution is applicable here, where the law Plaintiff is challenging is different than the law under which he allegedly fears criminal prosecution.”
“Plaintiff claims that he has suffered an injury-in-fact in his individual capacity related to the enactment of the Green Light Law, because he, in his role as Erie County Clerk, will be required to comply with its provisions, which will expose him to federal criminal prosecution and/or removal from office by the Governor. The Court has considered Plaintiffs allegations and arguments and concludes that Plaintiff has not satisfied his burden of alleging “facts that affirmatively and plausibly suggest that [he] has standing to sue” with respect to his individual capacity claims.”
