Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings filed in NJ Taser Case
After New Jersey's concession in Lambert, and then answer in NJ2AS/Mark Cheeseman's case, we drafted and filed a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings, which essentially asks the Court to enter judgment in our favor because we are entitled to it. Here is a snippet:
Between requesting extensions and answering the Complaint on November 10, 2016, Defendant Christopher Porrino, in a case styled State of New Jersey v. Kevin Lambert, Docket No. A-1996-15T5 (attached), conceded that the State of New Jersey’s “… stun-gun statute violates the Second Amendment…” Id. at 10. Further, the Attorney General’s concluded that “For all the foregoing reasons, this Court should rule that defendant’s conviction for possession of a stun-gun violates the Second Amendment…” Id. at 16. This concession came three days before the Defendants in the instant case filed their Answer; essentially denying that the stun gun ban violates the Second Amendment.
It is a very short brief that is available here.
