Eric Holloway of Marshfield is suing Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole to appeal the sheriff’s denial of his concealed carry permit.

In a July 8 hearing on the matter, the judgment was in favor of the sheriff, as Holloway failed to establish as a matter of law that he is entitled to the permit. The court notified the parties of their right to a new trial, and the plaintiff’s request for a new trial was filed on July 15.

The original hearing was presided over by John C. Porter, associate judge, Polk County. Holloway has retained new counsel for the new trial.

Is this the same Eric Holloway who tried to have his ex-wife killed? Real question.
