FOIL Requests – Peter Tilem

Today’s FOIL Friday is brought to you by the letter “T” for Peter Tilem, the recently Terminated criminal defense attorney retained by the Town Board. There are 50 pages of invoices over a period of 8 months. Here is a snippet: “Researched first amendment protection afforded to speech that threatens/makes people uncomfortable. (supreme court ruled in 2015 that the one making the speech must intend to threaten) additionally protesting outside politicians homes and what recourse to families have? (homes do not have protection, protestors can be outside even if politicians not home) common decency suggests not making statements that people do not like nor going after politicians families, but this is protected.” Well that certainly seems worth $1300.
