Commonwealth Second Amendment, Inc.
Citizens Ignored by Everett Police
Lawsuit Filed against Chief
For Immediate Release: December 12, 2012
A potentially precedent setting lawsuit will be filed in District Court tomorrow against the Chief of Police of Everett, Massachusetts for failure to comply with the law. The petition states that the Police Department failed to adhere to M.G.L. c.140 § 131 by ignoring the plaintiff's application for a license to carry and therefore deprived the plaintiff of his right to administrative due process. The law states that "the licensing authority shall, within 40 days from the date of application, either approve the application and issue the license or deny the application and notify the applicant of the reason for such denial in writing."
"My client, Mr. Johnathan Grover, has not been either issued a license or denied in writing as required by the law," said Attorney Jason A. Guida. "We filed a suit to demand that the Police simply follow the law."
