Judge continues case against Keene parking meter 'Robin Hoods'
Cheshire County Superior Court Judge John Kissinger, however, continued the case, giving both sides 20 days to submit more arguments.
Kissinger said the extension would give both sides more time to speak to the “serious legal issues” of “standing” as well as the “constitutionality” issue raised by members of the Robin Hood group.
Kissinger said a full day would have to be scheduled for the trial, since the city alone wants to present five witnesses, including the three parking enforcement officers.
“We are all individuals and we all have our individual motivations,” Freeman said.
City Attorney Thomas P. Mullins told Kissinger the city may amend its suit to address the “collective” issue.
“I think they brought this case in bad faith,” Freeman said to Kissinger.
“It was a colossal waste of time and taxpayer money,” he said.
“These people from what I’ve seen on the videos are peaceful,” Warden said of the Robin Hooders. “They are relativity courteous and just trying to help educate them in seeing a different side of the issue. And I think anybody that works for the state, the taxpayers, should be willing to have those kind of discussions without feeling threatened.”
“In addition, I have begun to suffer physical effects due to the stress, including coming home from work with a red face, feeling heart palpitations, and having dreams related to this activity.”
