A Maine landlord wants tossed a lawsuit filed by a retired Maine lobsterman who shot an intruder with a gun he bought less than a day earlier for protection against burglars.
The lawsuit had been filed last month by Harvey Lembo, 67. He uses a wheelchair and says he armed himself after five burglaries in six years at his Rockland apartment complex. Lembo bought an old gun on Aug. 31 and the next day he shot and wounded a man he believed had broken into his apartment to steal prescription medication he uses for chronic pain, according to the Bangor Daily News.
Lembo went to court after getting a letter soon after the shooting that informed him that his gun violated house rules and that eviction proceedings could be initiated if he did not comply.
In his lawsuit, Lembo accuses his landlord, Park Place Associates of Rockland, of violating his right to own a gun. He is also suing the management company.
Earlier this week lawyers for Park Place and the management company responded to the lawsuit. They asked a state judge to throw out the case.
