Today I took the initiative to do what lawyers do before taking cases before the court — discussing the matter with the opposition. After passing through district court security at City Hall, I headed upstairs to see if city attorney Thomas Mullins was available. We scheduled a time to meet tomorrow morning to discuss the world-famous Robin Hooding lawsuit. While not open carrying my camera at the time, Mullins laid down a non-negotiable prohibition on electronic recording as the condition under which he would be willing to have a dialogue. I find it unfortunate that city officials are not willing to be objectively accountable in dialogues regarding public matters, but I will be permitted to take at least written notes.
It’s worth considering that City Manager Prince John MacLean has regarded Robin Hooding as inherently “harassing” since he made public statements collectively deriding its participants in a Keene Sentinel cover story dated 11 April 2013. Prior to and after this, not once did any representative of the city raise concerns about “harassment and intimidation” to the accused directly as is alleged in the six-defendant lawsuit.
The condition upon which I enter the dialogue tomorrow is that I represent no person except for myself, and that no person represents I but myself. Mullins informed myself that if I were to have paid a lawyer to field the case for me, that he would then be prohibited from having communication with me in any manner but through my attorney.

On Monday May 20, after the security theater closed, Nemi (Free Talk Live co-host) and Graham delivered bouquets of flowers to “Prince” John MacLean and Thomas P. Mullins, the City Manager & City Attorney respectively. The flowers were delivered to thank them for all of the news coverage they have brought Free Keene, Robin Hood and the Free State Project.

In an entry published two days prior, you may recall reading about two theatrical monologues delivered at the state house which prompted a response from the Concord Monitor and from satirical blogger Susan the Bruce. And now, after one week’s wait, both performances are available on the internet for your viewing pleasure! Through the powers of Vimeo, you can see and hear both of the performance pieces as stand-alone orations, in addition to versions accompanied by their cinematic inspirations. Many thanks to Adam and Edgar for interjecting some culture into the otherwise drawn out and dreary budget hearing. Mr. Sutler’s performance is entitled The Law’s Coming (also with cinema overdubs).
Thanks to MSN’s Eli Epstein for filing this video report about Robin Hooding and the city’s lawsuit against us. Here’s the text that accompanies the video: (the text is different from the video’s audio)
Keene, N.H., doesn’t normally have a lot in common with Sherwood Forest.
Recently, however, a group of residents calling themselves the “Robin Hooders of Keene” have made the city more similar to the fictional forest than anyone could have imagined. Read more
A crew from ABC’s Good Morning America came up to Keene from NYC yesterday evening. Here’s their package that aired nationally this morning. (Some footage was sourced from ABC affiliate WMUR-TV in Manchester.)
