Moore Seeks Indirect Criminal Contempt Charges Against Grafton Township Trustees as Husband’s Tiff with Trustee Gerry McMahon Goes to Trial
Today Grafton Supervisor Linda Moore’s husband David Moore is in criminal court on October, 2010, battery charges.
Concurrently, Moore’s attorney John Nelson in the Separation of Powers case she won is asking for indirect criminal contempt findings against Trustees Rob LaPorta, Betty Zirk, Barb Murphy and Gerry McMahon.
Up to six months behind bars or a fine is requested, the paperwork says.
Here’s the part of Judge Michael Caldwell’s court order which Moore contends that the Trustees violated:
The issue is about the use of a Township credit card that was in existence prior to Moore’s taking office.
The Township Trustees voted not to pay bills incurred through use of the credit card and to cancel the card.
Also bought up was the Trustees’ voting for Moore to return a sound system bought for use at the Annual Town Meeting and at bi-monthly bingo games.

“Deliberately and willfully violating the terms of this Court’s injunction” are the “red meat” words on the page.
