ACLU helping banned Shirley official

The American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts has sued the town of Shirley to overturn a decision by selectmen to ban a local official, Robert Schuler, from town property two years ago after he made a reference to shooting a gun during a public meeting.

Schuler’s lawyer in the case says his comments “could not have been reasonably interpreted as a true threat.”
