DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Despite the evidence that the defendants were "peaceably assembled for the redress of grievances" and that their First Amendment rights had been "abridged" by the police orders in question, Judge Magistrate Celeste Bremer found [Christine Gaunt] (on four counts). Kirk Brown, Ed Bloomer, Rene Espeland, Elton Davis, [Brian Terrell] and Mona Shaw guilty of failure to comply with the directions of a police officer, and imposed a $50 fine per count. Commander [Michael Goldberg]'s hopes for injunctive relief from such assemblies were disappointed, however, by Judge Bremen's final words to those she had convicted and fined: "I hope that your witness to the senators continues and expands!"Gaunt's third trial was back in federal court on August 20, facing citations for after-hours die-ins on three dates. Magistrate Walters convicted her on two counts, but on the third, interfering with the duties of Senator [Grassley]'s staff, she successfully argued for acquittal because no one from the staff was there to testify about the allegation. He reduced the penalty on the other convictions, fining Gaunt atotal of $105.
