That's one argument among many Kizzia makes in his brief in support of his motion to dismiss the city's claims that Groden, who was arrested earlier this year during a DPD crackdown in Dealey Plaza, is in violation of the city code. The brief was filed with the court yesterday and is available after the jump (along with his proposed order of dismissal). Following a pre-trial hearing last week, the judge had asked for more supporting documents in advance of another hearing set for December 16, at which point Chavez will decide whether or not the case against Groden goes to trial.
Hundreds of citizens visited Dealey Plaza yesterday to commemorate that tragic event in American political history and to exercise their First Amendment rights about the controversy that surrounds the greatest murder mystery in American history. Protection of those rights is the very reason that the United States Department of Interior designated Dealey Plaza as part of a National Historic Landmark District 17 years ago.
In the meantime, as we noted over the summer, Groden's still out there selling his merch at the assassination site, pending the outcome of the case.
"And the city hasn't gone to hell in a handbasket," Kizzia tells Unfair Park. "Nothing awful is happening out there. He's just exercising his rights. People are attracted to him! He doesn't force himself upon the,. He's providing a public service, much more so than he's bothering anyone. The fact that the city has agreed [to lay off during the court proceedings] and nothing bad has happened proves it's all bull. Hopefully we'll get a court determination of that."
