Activist Threatens Lawsuit Against WABC PD After Ejection From Hannity/Levin Event

A liberal activist who was ejected from a SEAN HANNITY/MARK LEVIN appearance on LONG ISLAND says he'll sue CITADEL Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK PD PHIL BOYCE for "false imprisonment." The activist, posting at DAILY KOS under the name "davefromqueens" and saying that he is a lawyer, said that after an exchange with LEVIN at BOOK REVUE in HUNTINGTON, LONG ISLAND, BOYCE demanded to know what he would ask HANNITY and then called the police to have the man ejected from the premises. The man claims he has a "rock-solid" case with video and says that BOYCE "falsely imprisoned" him for 15 minutes and called the police with "bogus claims" in a "braincramp meltdown."
The man adds that "If the lawyers at WABC have brains and realize the situation, they may want to come to a reasonable and mutual conclusion to the matter. If we reach an agreement that's fair, I won't pursue it further. However, this is a unique case because it is very public already and going to get more public. 99.9% of the time you don't broadcast lawsuits or your legal intentions. Thus, the circumstances of a settlement could include creative solutions, but from my point of view, it would also have to include some admission of wrongdoing/personal accountability on their part."
