11/09/2003 Archived Entry: "Roy Lucas, attorney on Silveira v. Lockyer dies"

ROY LUCAS, VIP CONSULTING ATTORNEY ON SILVEIRA V. LOCKYER IS DEAD. The mainstream media eulogized him as the legal theorist behind Roe v. Wade. But at the end of his life, he was working on the most sweeping case ever in support of the Second Amendment. He died of a heart attack on November 3 while visiting Europe.

This might be a good time to pledge renewed support to KeepandBearArms.com for its efforts to get Silveira v. Lockyer before the Supreme Court.

(NOTE: When I originally posted this entry, I called Lucas the lead atty. Wrong. That's Gary Gorski, who was very gracious in not making an issue of it. Lucas was vital to the case, helping craft and prepare arguments for the Supreme Court, with which he had both experience and expertise.)
