The assistant city attorney from the “City of Keene” is now appealing their smoke alarm case to the Supreme Court. The Keene district court recently tossed out the city’s case against me because the city agents violated their own RSAs, which prohibit the fire chief from inspecting single family or duplex homes. Now, because they hate to lose and have plenty of your tax dollars to spend, the assistant attorney, Leon I. Goodwin III has filed a “mandatory appeal” and ordered up a $275 transcript of the two-hour hearing in district court on the validity of the original inspection warrant.
Here’s Goodwin’s appeal filing with the Supreme Court, which includes the transcript order form.
Does anyone know what happens with an appeal? Do I file a response once it is docketed? I’ve gotten a case past this point before. (Generally, I refuse to give the system money, so I don’t appeal. I’ve tried to get them to waive the fee, but it never works.)
