There is not an appeal "question" in this post. I am not a NC lawyer, but if you truly want to appeal the decision, I would recommend legal representation. A core issue to be addressed on appeal is why do you need a pistol permit.

First, I am not a North Carlonia attorney. But from your question, the answer is YES. The appellate court usually receives the entire record from the trial court--including any transcript (assuming you have ordered them). So the transcript of the motion for reconsideration or any other transcript... Read more »

First, I am not a NC attorney. That being said, I suppose you could file another motion for a temporary stay. But that motion will probably be denied as the first one was, unless you can show a material change in your favor.

First, I am not a North Carolina lawyer. That being said, I think--unless there's an exception in NC law that I don't know about-- the filing of any appeal does not automatically stay the ruling or any order in the trial court (or any agency, etc.). The appellant must file a motion to... Read more »

It would be best if a North Carolina attorney advised you, but you await a response for four weeks, and the whole matter may be moot by now if you already had the hearing you mention. But as a general matter, attorneys should be able to share information with clients - their role essentially makes... Read more »

First, lets get terminology straight. In North Carolina it is Driving While Impaired or DWI not DUI. If you got 12 months of active time on the first DWI that you were on probation for then it is very likely that DWI was not your first and / or was a higher sentencing level than your average...
