A Delaware County civil rights attorney recently filed suit against Delaware County on behalf of his client, arguing that the County's policy of refusing to return confiscated firearms unless the owner obtains a court order is unconstitutional. The lawsuit arose when the client's girlfriend filed a protection from abuse order against him. The judge ruling on the order ultimately threw the order out, finding that there was no basis for it, but not before the client's guns had all been confiscated by the Delaware County police, who then refused to return the firearms without a legal action. The Delaware County attorney is arguing that this policy gives unfettered discretion to judges to rule whether a person should get his or her firearms back which is an alleged violation of the owner's civil rights.
