In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action claiming that a town selectman violated plaintiff's right to petition the government under the First Amendment by refusing to meet with him in retaliation for his filing a lawsuit against the town, judgment as a matter of law for defendants is affirmed where, given that plaintiff had no business with the town and suffered no harm or injury, the town's reasonable precaution to communicate with an adverse litigant only in writing was not a violation of a constitutional right.
