Weare settles lawsuit over recording at traffic stop
Carla Gericke, president of New Hampshire’s Free State Project, was arrested in March 2010 and initially was charged with illegal wire tapping. The charge was later dropped, but Gericke sued the town, police department and arresting officers, saying her arrest was retaliatory.
The 1st Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an earlier federal court ruling last month, saying police could only limit or ban the recording of traffic stops under justified circumstances, including the need to maintain safety and control.
