"This office has a legal and constitutional obligation to vigorously defend the laws of the state of Maryland," said David Paulson, a spokesman for the state Attorney General's Office.
But no obligation to secure the citizen's Civil Rights, apparently.
"[Judge] Legg has granted a temporary stay of the ruling. He has requested both sides to file additional briefs before ruling on whether the stay should remain in effect throughout the appeals process.
Legg has also ordered the Maryland State Police to re-process Woollard's 2009 permit renewal application without considering the "good and substantial reason" requirement."
So, maybe he'll make it a permanent stay if the state can't convince him. So the state should probably hurry up, process my application, and deny me, before the temporary stay becomes permanent. Unless Judge Legg says they have to process as Shall Issue for everyone that applied after the date of the original ruling... I hope Judge Legg reads my blog so this detail is at least considered in the proceedings. (Ha! Fat chance of that.)
