Morial v. Smith and Wesson
Mr. Ryan was counsel for Glock, Inc. in noteworthy and unique litigation brought by the Mayor of New Orleans against the entire firearms industry. The lawsuit brought by Mayor Marc Morial in 1998 was the first such suit of its kind, and caused dozens of similar lawsuits to be brought by other cities and state governments. Mr. Ryan was responsible for drafting a successful appeal to the Louisiana Supreme Court which dismissed the Mayor's cause of action.
