Update on EOPSS memo and its refutation in court:

Posted by Keith G. Langer | Feb 07, 2019 | 0 Comments

EOPSS admitted in its memo that it has no licensing authority (by statute, that lies with the licensing authority in each individual town); it then told the chiefs whose imprudent revocations were overturned it would not issue licenses as ordered by those 14 courts.

EOPSS has changed its tune.

It has, grudgingly, acknowledged court orders supersede EOPSS' policy pontifications. The LTCs the courts ordered are being restored; my client got his this week.

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.
