Judge Edward Nottingham
When I was younger I believed that I had rights.
I knew that not everyone had rights, but I believed that I had rights because I was an American and because I graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
I moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, my husband’s home town, and bought a beautiful property to raise our children in. Unfortunately, we moved across the street from the president of the city council. He fenced off the street adjoining our home so only he could use it. Then I was criminally charged for gardening without a trimming permit, a permit never issued to anyone.
