Court: Castle Doctrine not extended to another's car
#1
Quote:A Cincinnati court declined Wednesday to extend Ohio's Castle Doctrine – that states you have no duty to retreat to defend your home or vehicle, or “castle” – to include a car not owned by the defendant.

Wednesday’s decision by the Ohio 1st District Court of Appeals comes as gun issues are raging across the country.

The Castle Doctrine, adopted in 2008 in Ohio, extends to your car, but Woodrow Edwards III was seeking to have it extended to a car he was driving, that belonged to his girlfriend, when he pointed a gun at another man he believed meant him harm.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Okay, I only read the excerpt...but it makes no sense that you are allowed to defend yourself in your car, but not somebody else's car. Huh?

So I guess if you are a passenger, that means you're out of luck too???

All it sounds like is the man who he (the defendant) pointed his gun at was not a big enough threat to warrant pointing his (the defendant) gun at him. The defendant used the Castle Doctrine to justify pointing a gun at someone, and it was rejected in court. If you're in a friend's car and someone goes to carjack you, you are still okay to use "reasonable" force. There's probably more to this case then what we are aware, and that's why the self-defense castle doctrine didn't apply to this situation (see below).

Quote:To add an odd twist, Taylor was the former boyfriend of Edwards’ girlfriend, who owned the car Edwards was driving.

^ that. Sounds more like "hood drama" to me than a normal self-defense scenario.

Doesn't PAs Castle Doctrine extend to any place you are legally permitted to be while carrying a gun?
