WVCDL Litigation

WVCDL et al. v. City of Charleston

On December 16th, 2013, the West Virginia Citizens Defense League filed for an injunction against the City of Charleston in the Kanawha County Circuit Court. Charleston has continued to enforce multiple city ordinances which are in clear violation of state law governing Home Rule cities, made effective July 1, 2013. Under the state law, Charleston's firearms ordinances are rendered null and void as a condition of participation in the Home Rule Pilot Program. The WVCDL is not seeking financial damages; only injunctive relief.
