    This was obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request. Dan's signature was redacted by me for his privacy.

    FOIA strikes again!

    I hope dan knows this wasn't to invade his privacy but to lambaste the gov't of Norfolk.

    I'm pretty sure it was this one:

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum54/3298.html

    Dan was involved in several but I'm pretty sure the payout is related to this particular incident.

    Wow. That's one hell of a college fund. :shock:
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Ithink this small informally arrived at settlement is a prelude of much larger settlements which will be paid by taxpayers to settle the police abuses of the Chet Szymecki and his wife at Horborfest - that suit is moving forward under the same lawyer who obtained the settlement for Dan Moore.

    I would expect the eventual settlement or jury award for the Szymeckis will add at least one zero to the end of the $10,000 that Dan received.

    Again thank you Dan for fighting the good fight.

    To Chet Szymecki and his family go our best wishes.

    It is a shame that the taxpayers must bear this burden with no personal liability assigned to the politicians. As long as there are those that would trample our rights, we must remain ever vigilant and responsive.

    That would buy a lot of copies of gun rights flyers and VCDL bumper stickers , or everyone could get a "Black Man with a Gun" hat. :P

    Glad to hear it worked out for you, Dan.

    Peace

    congrats Dan,

    Just read your full thread regarding the incident, if you ever need a friend, I am positive you can find a few here, screw the ones who think law breaking cops are right and you are wrong.

    It's been a long time coming, but good for you, Dan. I would open carry with you any day (when I come down to Norfolk that is).

    Haven' heard much about Dan lately, but I hope he is doing well.

    I'm surprised there wasn't a nondisclosure clause.

    Congratulations Dan!

    Oh but there was a non-disclosure clause - it applied to Danibus.
    The information was acquired by someone else with a FOIA request.

    Norfolk can run but they cannot hide. :celebrate

    Normally such clauses do not void FOIAbility of the money transfer.

    Which kind of points up the dishonesty of public officials trying to impose non-disclosure agreements on participants in public proceedings. They're willing to waste the time of the clerks complying with a public records request by trying to hide their defeat, instead of just being honest about the situation.
