NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Connecticut Bar Association (CBA) members last week deadlocked in a referendum on whether to reverse the decision of the organization’s leadership to support the defense of Connecticut’s highly restrictive gun control law in the Shew v. Malloy lawsuit pending in the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The final vote was so close that CBA President Mark Dubois wrote members, “I am ruling that the referendum vote will be called as tied. I do not feel that the best interests of the CBA would be served going forward without a clear and empirically defensible result.
Accordingly, I have decided not to sign the brief prepared by the Brady Center in support of the Appellee in the matter of Shew v. Malloy.”
