December 12, 2021 -- The Georgia Supreme Court handed John Monroe Law, P.C. a big win, ruling that a weapons carry license applicant does not bear the burden of proving that he is eligible for a license. Until now, probate judges around the state uniformly imposed such a burden on applicants. Hopefully going forward applicants will receive the process required by the legislature and not imposed arbitrarily.
Today Attorney John Monroe argued a case before the Supreme Court of Georgia regarding the standard for granting weapons cary licenses. The Court of Appeals had ruled against a firm client, finding that an arrest with no disposition is grounds for detail of the license. The Supreme Court agreed to hear the case and heard arguments. A decision is expected within the next few months.
