Mr. Kapelsohn's recent expert witness cases have included the high-profile State of Minnesota v. Yanez, State of Arizona v. Brailsford, Estate of Angel Lopez v. City of San Diego, LeGrier v. City of Chicago, State of Minnesota v. Noor, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Roselle.

Emanuel Kapelsohn was a key witness at the trial of Miller v. Rob Bonta, Attorney General of the State of California in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. This is the highly-publicized decision announced on June 4, 2021, striking down California’s so-called “Assault Weapons” law as unconstitutional. It is one of the most significant 2 nd Amendment decisions of our time. Mr. Kapelsohn’s testimony was cited some 15 times in the Court’s decision. Many articles and summaries of the decision are available on the internet. A full copy of the Court’s decision can be accessed here.
