Bill Schmalfeldt, aka Liberal Grouch, was found by a judge in Maryland to be a harasser, Trolls hardest hit.
Judge Stansfield ruled in my favor. He found that Bill Schmalfeldt engaged in a continuing pattern of conduct to harass or annoy me, that he continued to do so after being told to stop, and that he did so without any lawful purpose. He also found that Bill Schmalfeldt was likely to continue that behavior and, on that basis, he issued a peace order.
What does that mean?
First, Bill Schmalfeldt has been adjudicated as a harasser.
Second, if he doesn’t leave me alone for the next six months, he can be charged with a crime.
What does it not mean?
It doesn’t mean that the First Amendment is trouble, at least not because of this ruling. Bill Schmalfeldt is still free to write about me so long as he steers clear of threats or defamation. He simply needs to stop addressing me directly. (Read More)
Also of note is that Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin accompanied Schmalfeldt to the hearing.
