It’s Not Just Massachusetts Playing the Obstruction Game

Posted by Keith G. Langer | Mar 26, 2021 | 0 Comments

One Michigan county is doing it also - and, as in MA with the the GOAL/Comm2A lawsuit, is being sued accordingly:

“‘The suit has been filed against the Wayne County Clerk's Office, which has, at times, scheduled CPL appointments up to 11 months out while neighboring counties are processing applications in two to four weeks, said attorney Terry Johnson who took the case to ‘force an elected official to do their job.'

‘It's either they don't want to do it, they're incompetent, or they just don't care,' Johnson said. He questioned how the office could process birth and death certificates, and marriage licenses but not CPLs.”

I suggest “they just don't care” is the correct answer.

Your Time May Be Limited!

If you are a defendant in a civil suit, you have a specific period of time in which to file an answer. Failure to do so can result in a default judgment being issued against you. Failure to timely submit responses to discovery requests can also negatively affect your case. Those named as defendants in criminal cases via clerk magistrate or “show cause” hearings must appear, or the complaint will issue against them. Those seeking to appeal a negative action, such as a firearms license denial or revocation, denial of a permit, or losing a case at trial, all have specific time periods in which to act. Do not lose your rights by inertia or delay.

Act Now!

The law is an area in which inertia can have very negative consequences: The loss of rights and remedies. It is unlikely that your problem will just “go away” - act now to protect yourself and preserve your options.
