Pennsylvania Supreme Court AFFIRMS Decision Imposing Financial Judgment Against the Pennsylvania State Police for Violating Second Amendment Rights!

Today, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued an order in Haron v. PSP, 65 MAP 2017, affirming the Commonwealth Court’s decision entering a judgment of approximately $6,500 against the Pennsylvania State Police (“PSP”) for erroneously denying an individual his right to keep and bear arms, in an issue of first impression that was litigated by Chief Counsel Joshua Prince and Attorney Adam Kraut. We previously blogged about the Commonwealth Court’s decision, when we were successful in securing that initial decision. Thereafter, the PSP appealed to the PA Supreme Court.

Today, seemingly finding that the PSP’s appeal was frivolous and didn’t even warrant time being spent to write a decision, the PA Supreme Court issued the Per Curiam Order simply stating “AND NOW, this 18th day of July, 2018, the order of the Commonwealth Court is hereby AFFIRMED.” As such, we will be filing a motion with the Court for additional attorney fees and costs incurred by Mr. Haron during the PSP’s appeal to the PA Supreme Court. Hopefully, this decision will cause the PSP to reconsider its tactic of denying individuals and forcing them to incur attorney fees and costs in matters, where the individual is not prohibited under the law.

  1. So are we possibly going to see our first successful federal prosecution for denial of civil rights under color of law (18 USC §241 et seq)?

  2. Congrats on your hard work! You are impressive.

    Now that you have this win, plus the Yox decision, roughly how much is it going to cost, retainer-wise, to get my rights back? I don’t mind having the PSP pay for it. Bearing in mind, I was 302’d without an emergency warrant, without a police statement, without even a statement by a responsible party at the time of the exam. Since I am a federal law enforcement agent, combat vet and Life Member of the NRA, I would imagine it would be fairly simple, now. I have all the paperwork, every scrap. Contact me, please.
