Hook Reporter Subpoenaed

Remember the allegation of police brutality in the Water St. crosswalk incident? The Hook‘s Courteney Stuart has been subpoenaed as a witness because she wrote a story about it. Which is bizarre on a couple of levels: not only was she not a witness, but, as editor Hawes Spencer points out, “if a reporter has to go to court everytime they write a story to say that they wrote it, that would be a waste of time and it seems like a waste of court resources. Stuart has filed a motion to be dismissed as a witness, which the court will consider in the form of a hearing on Monday morning.
