Village Statement on Appeal of Assault Weapons Ban Ruling

Updated June 21, 2019

On June 12, 2019, the 2nd District Appellate Court issued an order dismissing the Village’s appeal on the Assault Weapons Ordinance ruling. The Appellate Court believes the Village’s appeal was premature because Judge Berrones did not issue a final order on the matter, and the Court was also unsure how Judge Berrones consolidated the cases. The Appellate Court’s decision was procedural in nature only. It did not discuss, nor did it make any ruling on, the merits or the substance of the case. The Village’s litigation team is working with Judge Berrones to get a final appealable order so that the Village can begin again with the appeal process.

Updated April 16, 2019

The Village of Deerfield issues the following statement announcing the appeal of the March 22, 2019 court ruling regarding the assault weapons ordinance:

"On April 15, the Mayor and Village Board unanimously agreed to appeal the March 22 ruling prohibiting enforcement of the Village’s assault weapons ordinance to the Illinois Appellate Court.

We appreciate the continued pro bono services that have been provided already, and that will be provided throughout the appellate process by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and Mr. Christopher Wilson, partner of the Chicago office of Perkins Coie. We continue to believe that these weapons have no place in our community and that our common-sense assault weapon regulations are legal and were properly enacted."
