SCARBOROUGH — An argument to reconsider a criminal case against a town critic who was arrested at a public meeting is slated for later this month. 

An allegation of criminal trespass by the town against Falmouth resident Michael Doyle was dismissed in April in Maine Superior Court after Scarborough’s attorney, Mark Franco, failed to appear for a hearing.

Franco said he was not notified about the hearing and was in the process of drafting a response to Doyle’s motion to dismiss when he learned the case had been dismissed. He will argue his motion for reconsideration May 17. 

Doyle, 69, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass for refusing to leave a Town Council meeting last November.
