On June 26, 2018, the ACLU-NH filed a Chapter 91-A petition against the Town of Salem.  This case concerns the ACLU-NH’s investigation into whether the Salem Police Department used its immense law enforcement power to intimidate two individuals who were potential witnesses against the Department in a pending criminal case, including one witness who recently spoke to the press.  In May 2018, the ACLU-NH submitted two Chapter 91-A requests concerning this incident, and these requests were denied.  These denials led to this lawsuit.
