Black Hawk appeal started
The three bicyclists who were ticketed last summer for riding in the town of Black Hawk are now appealing their citations in the Gilpin County District Court, after Black Hawk’s Municipal Judge denied their Motion to Dismiss the tickets.
An appeal brief has been filed by the defendants’ lawyers, Shoemaker Ghiselli + Schwartz LLC. The brief explains why Black Hawk’s bicycle ban contradicts state law and is not a reasonable exercise of police power. The City of Black Hawk recently filed an answer brief in response to the appeal.
