Council President Lee Loder ... [cached]

Council President Lee Loder hires lawyer over animal cruelty issue.

Council President Lee Loder's dog, Stokely, at the time of its impoundment by police on September 26. On Tuesday, November 19, the Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) convened a press conference to address recently dismissed charges of animal cruelty against Birmingham City Council President Lee Loder.
The case was dismissed October 17 by Municipal Court Judge David Barnes for a variety of alleged illegal actions by police and the city's law department, both of which dispute the judge's claims. (Barnes was re-appointed by the city council this past August at the recommendation of Loder's Administration Committee.
After a meeting between GBHS director Jacqueline Meyer, GBHS attorney Angela Turner, and Loder, the council president and Turner spoke with local media in the hallway outside the council chambers.
Turner read a statement acknowledging that Loder is prevented from commenting on the case, as it has not been fully resolved.
Turner further stated that Loder had requested communication between the GBHS and other animal rights agencies to "engage in dialogue that addresses some of the issues involving the people and animals in this community.
Loder fielded questions following Turner's statement. "If there is any way to make this incident useful to those who may be interested in [obtaining] more information about the cause of animal rights, then I think that's a good move," he said.
A day before the scheduled press conference, the GBHS sent out a release announcing the event. Several hours later, a faxed letter from Loder's attorney, Arthur Shores Lee, was sent to Black & White requesting, in part, that retractions be made for "any statements, express or by innuendo, made in past or present that state that Mr. Loder has committed a criminal act and/or that state that Mr. Loder has engaged in criminal and/or immoral conduct.
The letter emphatically stated that Loder had not engaged in such conduct. According to the letter, Loder has authorized his counsel to take "immediate legal action to prevent continuous and irreparable harm to his reputation" should the retractions not be made or if any future statements cast further doubt on Loder's character.
When asked at the press conference about the threat of legal action in the letter made to the GBHS and various media outlets, Loder replied: "I obviously have to protect myself; I have to defend myself. Just because I'm a council president doesn't mean I have to lie down and let everybody stick daggers in me."
When later asked about the claim that Loder has not committed a "criminal act" or "engaged in immoral conduct" even though he was arrested in late September by Birmingham Police for neglecting his dog, attorney Lee stated that a violation of due process had occurred because Loder was arrested on a misdemeanor charge without a warrant. "Officer Dana Johnston [Birmingham Police animal cruelty officer] did not see this [abuse of the animal while the act was being committed]. She went by hearsay, what was told to her, and she looked at the dog and said, 'He looks thin, I'm going to arrest Mr. Loder,'" said Lee.
When asked if the dog was still in the vet's care, Lee said it was his understanding that the dog was at the vet while Loder was having improvements made to the dog's living quarters.
After meeting with the GBHS representatives, Loder made the following remark at the press conference: "I think my position as Council President places me in a unique position to either advance or hinder all kinds of causes."
"It doesn't really benefit us to just focus in on just [Loder] and this one case when there are hundreds of thousands probably just like it in this community.
Stokesberry, who was appointed by the city attorney's office due to a conflict of interest in the city's representation of Loder as council president, remains appalled that the case was dismissed by Barnes.
