Jon Meyer is a Manchester-based attorney whose normal focus is on employment-related cases, however he is also renown as one of the best lawyers in America on the subject of free speech.
Formerly an attorney with the NH Civil Liberties Union, in recent years Meyerwon a major free speech case at the NH Supreme Court involving a man in a bigfoot costume on Mt. Monadnock. Additionally and more recently he trounced then-Cheshire-Sheriff Dick Foote in court and had Foote’s no trespass orders against local liberty activists (banning us from court property) overturned as unconstitutional.
Now, Meyer has made the time in his busy schedule for the Robin Hood of Keene case where the people calling themselves “the city” are suing several Robin Hooders in hopes of creating a 50ft anti-freedom radius around the meter maids. Meyer filed his appearance today in Cheshire superior court on behalf of five of the six defendants, with Copblock.org‘s Pete Eyre deciding not to opt-in to having an attorney.
To be clear, Meyer is donating his valuable time to the cause, pro-bono, and is up against the city people’s hired gun (paid by your tax dollars) private attorneys, including renown civil rights attorney Charles P. Bauer. Bauer and his partner Eric Moskowitz have filed this “Memorandum of Law” on the constitutional issues in the case, as the judge requested. I’ll post Jon Meyer’s memorandum when it is ready, likely in a couple of weeks, as he just signed on to the case.
