Read the background here.

One of the counts was dismissed.

As you know Bruce is the person who started Citizens for Integrity. Bruce was also instrumental in helping SON, Save Spellerberg and the Snowgate petition drive. Bruce also has filed several ethics complaints against the mayor over pre-election presentations. He also helped file two complaints about the municipal election ballot language.

He is a man of integrity.

As for the case. Bruce’s neighbors have used city code enforcement for over  20 years to harass him while he has made improvements to his home, which has enraged the neighbors. They lost today, and rightly so. It is neither the city’s business or his neighbors on how he chooses to work on his house. In fact Joni Cutler, while giving her decision, commended Bruce for his ‘Passion’ in improving his property.

The city tried to prove that he held a criminal ‘public nuisance’ with his construction materials stored in his locked fenced off back yard. As judge Cutler pointed out, in the 20 years he has worked on his home, no health nuisances have occurred and the city failed to prove that one is imminent.

At one point in the trial, the city attorney became enraged when Bruce’s attorney brought up how Bruce was arrested and made to strip down and wear ‘stripes’ for 6 & half hours with common criminals over ‘building materials’. Bruce’s attorney, Charles Dorothy said in his closing arguments that being arrested for this was ‘offensive’. The city attorney ranted that this was brought up to fuel a civil suit against the city and the the media was ‘called’ in to report this. John Hult from the Argus Leader was at the trial all day, and I am sure he will write a long story about it.

Bruce has believed that this was a vendetta by the city for all of his involvement with the different petition drives and ethics complaints, and also bringing to attention that the EC siding was put on wrong.

There is much more to come. This is only the beginning.

Today the GOOD neighbor WON and the BAD neighbors lost.

    So when does Todd rhinehart get cited for perjury? that doesnt fall under immunity.

  2. “Love thy neighbor” is not a motto in this neighborhood.

    Congratulations Mr. Danielson. Your action is a landmark. Once there’s a new mayor, this city could return to rule of law.

    Thanks for this blog. The news media for some reasonvwill not publish Mr. DANIELSONS BEING FOUND NOT GUILTY. I 9spke to all tv stations and they were going to mentionvit last night. Still nothing.

  5. It’s nice to see mr. danielson win over MMM’s bullies.

  6. City should have to pay his lawyer fees.

    As a side note: I’ve been by this house several times over several years. Neighbors should have a right to say something about the perpetual construction zone for the last decade. You’ve got a right to do what you want with your property, but theres a limit. And all the shit wasn’t just in the backyard.

    The simple fix for this is the city to place limits on duration and/or # of building permits within a certain timeframe.

  7. Awfully naive if you believe the cities overreach of homerule will end with this mayor.

    Way to go Bruce. Glad to see that the city goofs need to be truthful and not always trying to game the system. I got a kick out of code enforcer saying they like to go to court so they can learn. Too bad the city attorneys are so poor at law but sure like us to think thy are

    City arrogance, ego, persecution, & discrimination made evident and matter of record from this trial. My civil case took 8 years. Mr. Danielson endured 21 years. I wonder how many more cases are covered up. The media denies citizens a full report. Apparently, liberty and justice is not as important as corn commercials or city business publication.
