University Gun Owner Harassment Lawsuit To Be Heard…Finally

Salem, Oregon –-( A saga that started almost two years ago is about to come to some kind of resolution.

As many of you know, in January of 2009, Marine Corp Veteran Jeffery Maxwell was arrested on the campus of Western Oregon University and charged with possession of a firearm in a public building.

Jeffery contacted OFF and with the intercession of our legal counsel, the DA dropped the charges, claiming it was “in the interest of justice.” In fact, it was in the interest of the law, since the DA had no case. As a CHL holder, Jeffery was exempt from the prohibition on possession in public buildings.

While the charges were dropped, the school  suspended Jeffery and otherwise made his life a living hell.

The Oregon Firearms Educational Foundation filed a lawsuit against the Oregon University System to challenge their policy of forbidding ANYONE to have a firearm on their campuses. After endless delays, a date has been set for the Oregon Appeals Court to hear our lawsuit.

The case will be heard on March 29th at 9 AM at Salem Courthouse, 1163 State Street, Salem, Oregon 97301-2563.
