Today two articles on legal land sagas before different Cheshire county courts published today to Free Keene. One covers the unconstitutional trespass orders issued against Robin Hooding co-defendant Graham Colson prior to the activation of consistent meter filling activities. The second article, featured below, focuses on the recently filed motion to dismiss the civil lawsuit enacted by the city and a supporting memorandum of law, as submitted by attorney Jon Meyer. As much fun and as much wonderful content as is produced by prolonged legal proceedings, the attorney volunteering to assist five activists makes an impermeable case for the lack of foundation upon which the city stands.
Attorney Jon Meyer Motions to Dismiss Robin Hood Case

Sept 06 2013
While the “evidentiary hearing” in the Robin Hood case is set to continue this fall, heroic free speech attorney Jon Meyer has filed his motion to dismiss and memorandum of law in Cheshire superior court. In the memorandum, he outlines his reasons:
Meyer points out that the city’s claim of “tortious interference” on the part of the Robin Hooders fails to meet the requirements of a tort and if the city were successful in their case, the resulting order would violate the Robin Hooders‘ free speech rights. Even if the activists were not pleasant towards the parking enforcers, it would still be within their free speech rights, and the enforcers – as public employees – should not be shielded from criticism. Meyer is also an employment law attorney and points out employees have no right to work in a non-hostile work environment, as the city’s attorneys claim.
What will the city’s hired-gun attorneys say in response? Will there be a hearing on the motion to dismiss? Will the city’s precious case be tossed out? Stay tuned to Free Keene for the latest on the Robin Hood saga.
