Today, we filed a lawsuit against New Jersey to overturn the Taser ban

The case, styled New Jersey Second Amendment Society and Mark Cheeseman v. Christopher S. Porrino, in his official capacity as Acting Attorney General and Colonel Rick Fuentes, in his official capacity as Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, was filed today seeking to overturn the stun gun/Taser ban in New Jersey.

My co-counsel Alan Beck and Ryan Watson are involved in this fight. This will be the second New Jersey case we have brought together. You can read the case here.

The complaint seeks the following relief:

WHEREFORE, Plaintiffs request that judgment be entered in their favor and against Defendants as follows:

  1. An order preliminarily and permanently enjoining Defendants, their officers, agents, servants, employees, and all persons in active concert or participation with them who receive actual notice of the injunction, from enforcing N.J. Stat. Ann. § 2C:39-3(h) to ban the acquisition, possession, carrying or use of Tasers and other electronic arms;

  2. An order declaring that N.J. Stat. Ann. § 2C:39-3(h) is unconstitutional and violates the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution;

  3. An order declaring N.J. Stat. Ann. § 2C:39-3(h) unenforceable;

  4. Costs of suit, including attorney fees and costs pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §1988;

  5. Such other Declaratory relief consistent with the injunction as appropriate; and

  6. Such other further relief as the Court deems just and appropriate.
