Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Dear Customer,Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you with this matter today.
Unfortunately, I do not have all of the details of your case to help you sort out exactly what is going on with your specific matter to help you identify why the two courts are issuing disparate relief. (I could speculate, but that is just another word for guessing).
You can find a good article describing the 2nd amendment, and relief from disability applications in New York here: http://www.nyclu.org/files/gv_daily_record_burger_071206.pdf
If I did have to guess, I would suspect that the judge you are in front of now, is waiting for a determination from the court that issued the original relief from disabilities, but you really need to speak with your current attorney (they have all of the facts and the actual court order to analyze and they can tell you exactly what is going on).
But hopefully the article above will give you a better idea of the law underlying your application to restore your right to own firearms and perhaps help you discuss the matter more fully with your attorney.
