Keene to appeal Robin Hood rulings
Back in May, the city filed a lawsuit against six residents who are part of a group that has dubbed itself Robin Hood of Keene.
In his Dec. 3 decisions, Kissinger granted the group's motions to dismiss based on its argument that the residents were within their constitutional right of free speech. Free speech attorney Jon Meyer filed the motions to dismiss.
In the response released Tuesday, the city said by dismissing the civil suits, the court failed to recognize and balance a public employee's right against the public's right to protest. The city also said the decisions could affect public employees across the state. "The City of Keene is very disappointed — and concerned — that the court order may subject all state, municipal, county, and public employees in New Hampshire to similar workplace interference, harassment, and intimidation, and the City believes that it has the right, and the obligation, to take the steps necessary to protect its employees from such actions."
