Harvey Lembo Faces Further Difficulties

posted on December 28, 2015

We’ve informed A1F Daily readers of the plight of retired Maine lobsterman Harvey Lembo here and, more recently, here. Now the disabled senior citizen, who defended himself with a firearm, is running into more problems.

Lembo’s landlord, Park Place Associates, has asked a judge to throw out the case. The property company lawyers argue that notifying Lembo that he could face an eviction if he did not follow house rules was insufficient to trigger the protection under the Second Amendment, according to the Bangor Daily News.

Of course, many see the case differently. “Threatening to evict Mr. Lembo for defending himself clearly violates his constitutional rights,” NRA Maine State Liaison John Hohenwarter said last month after Lembo sued. “Self-defense is a fundamental, God-given right that belongs to every law-abiding American—no matter their tax bracket, zip code or street address.”
