Mr. Ball appeared to sacrifice his life to bring attention to issues involving the unfairness of treatment of men in the NH Family Court System.
Several topics are discussed including Judge Edward Kelly's order that no audio or video recording equipment (including cell phones) are allowed in the Cheshire County Superior Court. This is an issue as the court system is using this for blocking reproduction of court files which are open to the public for inspection under RSA 91:a the right to know law.
During the Filming, Sheriff Richard Foote tells reporters that they will be arrested if they enter the courthouse with their recording equipment. When Foote is questioned about Kelly's order he states that he has not seen the order. Pay careful attention to the Deputy Sheriff who is filming this whole confrontation.
