Another basketball court in Danbury bites the dust?
Saturday, September 01, 2012 Time: 8:56 PM
What's going on here. What happened to the basketball court at Eden Drive. Thursday people are playing on the courts and on Friday morning, the courts are taped off and the back boards were removed...without explanation.
There has been been ANY police activity in relation to the courts.
There has been NO problems at the courts.
There has been NO fights at the courts.
I know this because I know people who either live or work by the courts AND are in the area all day every day.
This makes no sense...where are the kids in the Eden Drive area suppose to do now?
Hopefully someone at the housing authority will answer the public's questions...and soon!

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.
The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.
Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.
Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
