Harvey Lembo Appeals Case To Maine Supreme Court

posted on June 2, 2016

Harvey Lembo, the disabled 68-year-old whose home was burglarized six times and who bought a gun to protect himself—only to be threatened with eviction if he kept his gun—has appealed to Maine’s highest court in his lawsuit seeking relief, under the Maine Civil Rights Act, from his landlord. 

As we’ve detailed here and here, the day after Lembo bought his gun, when his home was invaded yet again, he shot and wounded the intruder. Police confiscated Lembo’s firearm as evidence in their case against the burglar, and Lembo’s landlord demanded he get rid of the gun—or get out of the apartment. 

Although Maine passed legislation protecting tenants like Lembo from being disarmed, a judge dismissed his lawsuit against the landlord that denied his Second Amendment rights. Now Lembo is appealing to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. No one should go through the injustice Lembo has faced. We wish him well.
