Baer Clarification

William Baer was charged with three counts of disorderly conduct after his appearance at a May 6, 2014, meeting of the Gilford School Board. He was never charged with resisting arrest. In addition, Judge Joseph A. DiClerico wrote in his decision last week that "because Leach at least arguably had probable cause under [state law], he is entitled to qualified immunity. Based on qualified immunity, Leach is entitled to summary judgment of Baer's false arrest claim."
