Richard Kreimer rides again (redux)



Richard Kreimer is homeless. He goes to public places, makes himself sufficiently obnoxious that he gets thrown out, and then sues on his rights. Wally and I have covered this at Overlawyered through the years, Mar. 2005, Feb. 2006, Dec. 2006, Aug. 2008. The Star-Ledger rediscovers the story (via ABAJ). Kreimer's own lawyer says "It's become kind of like a sting operation, where he's waiting for someone to violate his rights...This is a way for him to make money." Part of the problem is that the New Jersey Supreme Court has forbidden anti-loitering laws, a rebuke to James Q. Wilson's "broken windows" theory.
