March 25, 2020
In the midst of these unusual times, Petitioners, Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C., Firearms Policy Coalition, Inc., Prince Law Offices, P.C., Trop Gun Shop Ltd., and Roger Mullins, filed a Petitioners’ Emergency Ex Parte Application for Extraordinary Relief Pursuant to the Court’s King’s Bench Jurisdiction, against Governor Tom Wolf. In that application, the Petitioners challenged the constitutionality of the Governor’s March 19, 2020 Order, which ordered all businesses that were not life-sustaining to be closed. In response, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Middle District held on March 22, 2020, “With respect to those Petitioners alleging that the Governor’s March 19 Order infringes on this Court’s exclusive authority to regulate the practice of law, or otherwise interferes with this Court’s orders declaring a statewide judicial emergency…, the Application is DISMISSED AS MOOT.” The Order further states, “Although the Governor’s March 19 Order provides that businesses performing “Legal Services” must cease physical operations, he subsequently added the following proviso: ‘Except as required to allow attorneys to participate in court functions deemed essential by a president judge per the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's order of March 18, 2020, or similar federal court directive, and lawyers may access their offices to effectuate such functions and directives.’”
