Bordeaux is a nice guy, but sometimes he just doesn't get it. He should be in family law, not a probate judge.

What was the reason Bordeaux denied it in the first place?
It's in the opinion. The plaintiff had been convicted of a misdemeanor assault in VA 40 years ago. Bordeaux denied the GWL because the assault might have been a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. Bordeaux admitted he had no information who the victim of the assault was or that the victim had any relationship with the plaintiff. The plaintiff filed an affidavit the victim was a stranger to him.

The case has many procedural oddities. Bordeaux did not file an answer to the complaint (i.e., he was in default). The plaintiff filed a motion for summary judgment and Bordeaux did not respond to that. The court granted the motion, and ordered Bordeaux to issue the GWL within 10 days. Bordeaux disobeyed the court order and several months later still has not issued the GWL. The plaintiff filed a motion to have Bordeaux held in contempt for disobeying the court order. No ruling yet on that. The court also ordered the plaintiff to file a motion for attorney's fees and gave Bordeaux 10 days to respond to that motion. The motion was filed and 10 days went by without a response. Bordeaux later appealed the whole thing, and the court of appeals affirmed.

Sounds like Bordeaux has no business being a member of the judiciary to me.

Good job, John :righton:
Thanks. This is the second Court of Appeals opinion on GWLs to be decided against Bordeaux in the past year. I have two others, fully briefed, for which decisions are due in November. In the first one, decided in October, he had filed a motion for sanctions against me in the court of appeals for filing a frivolous appeal. That motion was denied.

Wow. What a f*ing clown. He has no business being in the law business.

Today, Bordeaux filed notice of his intention to seek certiorari from SCOGA.
Is it a matter of principle for him since he's "the judge" or doesn't he understand what his fiduciary duties are relative to issuing carry licenses?

I imagine the Supreme Court is going to take a dim view when the litigant did not even care enough to respond (to the answer or the MSJ).

Nicely done. Our judge is a slow learner, but he does a good job with guardianships.
