Jim Irvine's Writ Of Mandamus Court Documents

We told you on Thursday that Jim Irvine filed suit in the Ohio Supreme Court seeking a Writ of Mandamus against Cuyahoga County Sheriff McFaul.

Ohio's new concealed carry law provides for Temporary Emergency Licenses, or a TEL. However, you can only obtain a TEL from your county Sheriff, not adjacent county Sheriffs. With the loss of Ohio's affirmative defenses and no method to obtain a TEL, what is one to do?

The court documents filed with the Ohio Supreme Court can now be viewed here:

  • The Complaint
  • Memorandum in support
  • Verification of affidavit

    We will continue to update you as this story progresses.
