KingCast (almost, maybe kinda sorta) sits corrected: Civil Rights cases do go to trial in NH District Court, see Frank v. City of Manchester, 2009 CV 389
Update: I got schooled so I went back to Pacer and now I am thoroughly confused. See the top thumbnails from January and this comment from the 6 June Request for Jury Instructions:
Defendants, through their attorneys, submit the following proposed jury instructions
pursuant to Local Rule 16.2. The defendants note that cross-motions for summary judgment have been pending for several months, and depending on the ruling on those motions, the defendants may withdraw or augment these requests........
In this journal entry I questioned whether cases actually proceed to trial, but I see that Judge Paul Barbadoro DENIED Summary Judgment in Frank v. City of Manchester, 2009 CV 389 in which the City denied Mr. Frank a vendor's license because of unproved criminal accusations in which he was found Not Guilty. The proposed Jury instructions were filed on Monday 6 June 2011. Whether said denial is Constitutional or whether it is knee-jerk sua sponte ultra vires hack policing from a force that loves to beat the crap out of innocent people like Chris Micklovich and the other bloke who recently settled with them remains to be seen.
