A small protest was held Friday at the federal courthouse downtown. According to organizers Ty Robben and Mike Weston, the issue at hand is the use of summary judgments in lawsuits, what they called a violation of the Seventh Amendment that guarantees the right to a civil jury trial.

“I would like to thank the Courthouse security, ‘Homeland Security,’ for being professional and keeping us safe,” said Robben. He also thanked the Reno Police Department “who were on hand for what turned out to be a very, very casual protest. We didn’t chalk the sidewalks even though we could have.”

Robben said they will be holding more protests in front of Reno Federal Court this week.

“If you have been victimized by judicial corruption, police corruption, or government corruption – come on out to out next protest,” he said.
