With due respect, Mr. Johnson, your comments are decidedly ignorant and presumtive, not to mention atrociously bereft of basic grammar and spelling.
As a public easement, illegally forfeited by the town of Marana, Mr. Blumquist is entitled to occupy that area of the restaurant. Trespass is defined by ARS 13-1502-A-1 as knowingly entering or remaining unlawfully on any real property after a reasonable request to leave by the owner or any other person having lawful control over such property, or reasonable notice prohibiting entry. Not once was he asked to leave during the incident, and after prior rulings, he had no precedent for legitimate requests to stay away. Presuming he knew of any wedding rehersal dinner requires an assumption that he was aware of all reservations for the restaurant that evening and their import.
Mr. Blumquist is not challenging the ability of home and land owners to qualify their properties as private, just the unfair and deceitful practices which allow developers to abandon public lands and trusts with the complicit help of elected officials. Please refer to the most recent headlines in Tucson Weekly.
