In NYS, the NY Court of Appeals struck down residence laws state wide, since the SORA laws already addressed the issue of residency. (Current law states that lv 3 and are on parole or probation cannot enter or park 1,000 feet of a school. The courts have interpreted that as living near a school as well). So far the ruling as stood. Hopefully others can take hope in that and challenge other states residency restrictions using the same argument. If only the law makers would do some research and educate themselves.
