SB 278 provides for an Extreme Risk Protection Order(EPRO). An EPRO can be issued with a hearing to be held within 14 days AFTER the order is issued. The order is sent to LE immediately for input into LEADS. So information goes into LEADS BEFORE a hearing.
In 1970 the U.S. Supreme Court found, in Goldberg v. Kelly, that before a state terminates a welfare recipient’s benefits, the state must provide a full hearing before a hearing officer, finding that the Due Process Clause required such a hearing.
Although Goldberg v. Kelly is narrowly defined as dealing with the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution requiring an evidentiary hearing before a recipient of certain government welfare benefits can be deprived of such benefits, can this be applied to SB 278 with regards to depriving 2A rights before an evidentiary hearing is held?
I’d like to include that in testimony in opposition to SB 278 next Wed. if it’s appropriate. Comments are appreciated, especially from the legal eagles.
