Gazette Net – 12/3/13
According to the terms, the town has agreed to pay $27,500 to cover Damon’s lawyer’s fees. The pact, which town officials must still sign, settles complaints of malicious prosecution, illegal seizure of property and civil rights violations that were scheduled to be heard during a jury trial beginning Monday. It also spells out rights of bicyclists and motorists, including on Route 9 where Damon had been stopped by police on several occasions in 2009 and 2010 for riding his bicycle in the middle of the farthest right lane in a four-lane section during heavy traffic. Damon had his bicycle and a camera attached to his helmet confiscated during one of those stops and police pursued charges of disorderly conduct and illegal wiretapping.
