Kyle Jarvis at the Keene Sentinel is reporting that the people calling themselves the “City of Keene” will be appealing their loss in the Robin Hood case(s) to the NH “supreme” court. The appeal has not yet been filed. I’ll post it here when I get a copy.
City boss John MacLean has already claimed they spent at least $20,000 taxpayer dollars on the initial “superior” court case. How much will the appeal cost? Another $30,000? The required transcript of the three full days of “evidentiary hearings” will probably be a few thousand dollars alone. Whether “the City” wins or loses, I bet their private hired-gun attorney Charles Bauer will be laughing all the way to the bank.
Did the Keene city council approve this PR nightmare of a decision? Will the city people ever learn to stop aggressing against peaceful people? Stay tuned here to Free Keene for the latest on the Robin Hood saga.
UPDATE: Technically, they are appealing the dismissal of the case(s), so wouldn’t that mean that if the appeal is successful that the cases are remanded back to “superior” court to move ahead to trial? Keep in mind the first case never made it to actual trial – the three days we spent in court were merely “evidentiary hearings” for the purposes of the judge possibly issuing a preliminary injunction against us.
