States case against citizen journalist up in the air
Defenses motion for immunity not yet granted
Placeholder Image
The criminal case against citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale moved forward last week as a pre-trial motions hearing was held at the Dawson County courthouse. Tisdale's attorney, Bruce Harvey, motioned for his client to be given immunity, meaning she would potentially be released from charges of felony obstruction of an officer, misdemeanor criminal trespass and misdemeanor obstruction of an officer. Harvey argued that Tisdale should be given immunity because she was exercising clearly established First Amendment rights in filming in a public political forum, has a statutory right to protect herself against physical assault and had a right to resist unlawful arrest.
