Via Thirdpower, I have been informed that David Lawson, who along with his wife Colleen were co-plantiffs in McDonald v. Chicago, narrowly survived a house fire along with his mother. Sadly his brother and niece perished in the fire, and the home itself is a total loss. People are raising money for them. What an awful thing to have happen. I can’t even imagine.
I first met the Lawsons when they were bloggers, before McDonald v. Chicago. They had to take their blog down, and they couldn’t explain why. We didn’t find out until later, when the case was announced. Then it all made sense.
If you want to help them out, kick some funds to the gofundme campaign.
