New Jersey requests "in-person" settlement conference in Taser case
Today, New Jersey filed this letter with the Court, requesting that "... the Court schedule an in-person conference in the hopes of resolving this case in an amicable and non-adverserial (sic) manner."
New Jersey wants the Court to stay a ruling on our Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings to give the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police time to issue "reasonable regulations." What these "reasonable regulations" will look like is anyone's guess.
We filed a response to their letter, which you can read here, that states:
There should not be a stay on the Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings in this case. The proper procedural method is for this Court to issue judgment in favor of Plaintiffs. Then this Court could stay its Order pending the issuance of “reasonable regulations” that Defendants desire to implement. Even if the Court were to stay the pending motion, and the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police issues new “reasonable regulations”, that does not eliminate New Jersey’s ban on electronic weapons. Moreover, the Attorney General has not stated that he has the authority to repeal the ban. It is our belief that it would take an act of the legislature to repeal it.
We will update as soon as we hear back.
