Earlier I mentioned the NSSF lawsuit being dismissed. Well, in related news, OUR lawsuit was assigned a court date today.
I was waiting for a little more info, but since CCDL President Scott Wilson just mentioned it on John Rowland’s radio show on WTIC, I’ll go ahead and give you what little I know so far.
The hearing is set for January 30, 2014 at 1:00 PM in Courtroom One of the Abraham A. Ribicoff Federal Building, 450 Main St., Hartford, CT before Judge Alfred V. Covello.
UPDATE 1/21/2014: The judge has canceled oral arguments, and intends to issue a decision based on the evidence submitted. There will be no hearing on 1/30/2014
CCDL’s President and the lead attorney handling the lawsuit will appear on “The Real Story” on Fox 61 this coming Sunday, June 2nd at 10:00am.
Scott Wilson and Attorney Brian Stapleton were interviewed by the show’s hosts Al Terzi and Laurie Perez. Questions were answered about the basis of the lawsuit, and the constitutionality of the law. They are scheduled to appear in the show’s second segment, right after a segment on hurricane season and Obamacare with Insurance Commissioner Thomas Leonardi.
Be sure to tune in or set your DVR’s!
Note, if you are one of the unfortunate people like me who live in Fairfield County and have Cablevision, you will not be able to watch this live as last year they decided we’re part of New York City and have no interest in what’s happening in Connecticut.
