    Has anybody heard what has happened to Travis Yates in Madison? I have been out of touch on this and many other things going on as I have been working nights.

    I believe that is because it was a municipal citation and was more than likely paid.
    Some municipalities do not enter the info in ccap the only submit it to NCIC and some will not enter the info until after the court case is final.

    From what I can determine, Madistan Muni Court is barely on line.

    CCAP is for circuit court cases-things charged at the State level. State Patrol, Sheriff's dept, local police if charging a State charge. It's possible I suppose that some small municipalities report through CCAP but I've never seen it.

    Travis was probably charged with a municipal violation so his case isn't showing in CCAP. Just a guess but I would put a small wager that the State declined to charge at their level so the municipality went ahead and did it, albeit for less penalties.

    edit:
    yeah, I looked for Madison as well and didn't find much. The only municipal court site I know of in Wisconsin is Milwaukee's, but of course I haven't done an in depth search of other communities, so I could be way off.

    Cases in Madison's municipal court do not show up on CCAP. I got my information by calling the court and asking. Simple as that.

    As far as I know, Travis Yates' hearing is still on for Monday the 7th. at 10:30 a.m.

    I plan to show up to observe.

    Madison Municipal Court is in Room 201 of the City-County Building, 210 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. -- one block from the State Capitol.

    I must say it is odd that Travis has not visited the forum since his incident.

    I think that he was told not to post. He may be visiting/lurking and wisely keeping his mouth shut.

    December 7th, a most infamous day in history. In Northern Minnesota, where I was born and raised, in addition to remembering our brave soldiers and sailors that died for our freedom we Finns also celebrate it as the day Pearl Maki got bombed in Two Harbours.

    Travis Yates update: His case is still pending.



    What the court clerk described as a "hearing" scheduled for today was not a hearing. It basically was a meeting of a few minutes duration between a lawyer from the city attorney's office and Mr. Yates' attorney.

    The only news I can provide is that the matter has not been settled and we will have to await a date to be set for whatever event follows.

    Thanks for the update. I am very interested in this case.

    Even when you go onto the Madison Court Website, all of the Ordinances that it lists, as they pertain to Firearms, are mostly unlawful and contrary to Wisconsin Law.

    It is abundantly clear that Madison, Milwaukee, and other cities throughout Wisconsin think they are above State Law.

    I hope Mr. Yates wins, and I hope further that He wins big!

    After reading this I don't think I want open carry when I come to Madtown in Dec. I live to far away if they take my gun away. If they would give me a ride back to my house to put my gun away that would sent me back by about 24 hrs.
    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    I guess that's the difference between no crime and "stopping" a crime in progress. I prefer no crime.

    This is EXACTLY what the government wants. Irefuse to fear my government and encourage you not to cave. PM me and give me a date/time and we will OC together. I'd be willing to bet we won't be harassed by any LEO.

    Now, as far as how Yates has handled this, it is my opinion (I ain't a lawyer) that he handled everything incorrectly.

    Had this been me, once I was harassed, and given the ticket, I would have filed a complaint with the AG. I would have filed a complaint with the county DA against the city officers. I would have taken this to the press, and gotten everybody I know to complain about the ROUGE Madison Police department. I'd be on the McKenna show as often as she would have me. I would have filed a complaint with the Madison fire/police commission or whatever it's called for harassment, and lastly, I would have filed a civil suit against the city seeking a declaratory judgement baring the police from issuing any more disorderly citations for "open carry."

    In a nut shell, I'd have gone after them in every conceivable way.

    Heck, I'll just let everyone know what my plans are. I plan on coming to Madison on the 13th. We are staying at the Clarion Suits on Rimrock road check in at 4pm. We would like to find a good Chinese Buffet, then heading to the UP of Mi. I am disappointed to learn that I can not OC in Mi do to the fact I am still waiting on my CCP to come in the mail. I will have to let my wife carry in Mi.

    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    World Buffet -- by South Towne Mall. Primarily Chinese, but also pizza, meatloaf, etc.

    Won't be far from where you are staying.

    Jade Garden, on Park Street -- I'm assuming is still open. Haven't been there for awhile. Very good, but more limited offerings than World Buffet.

    Best Chinese food -- Imperial Garden, two locations, you'll be about midway between them. Not sure if they offer buffet.

    Thank you,

    Again this will be my 1st time OC anywhere:celebrate (Arkansas law). I already said that in another thread.

    Now back to Mr. Yates. I don't want to steal this thread.
