Post about what interests you, include links to election returns, and so forth. Sounds like the big news is that NBC has called Wisconsin for Walker.

Volokh Joins Aaron Walker Defense

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:27 pm

Huzzah!

I’m pleased to say that I’ll be consulting with Aaron Walker’s defense lawyer in the case I discussed last week, in which a Maryland judge issued a “peace order” — in other states, generally called a “restraining order” — that the judge seemed to interpret as limiting Aaron Walker’s blogging about Brett Kimberlin. (See, e.g., this audio recording, starting at 46:01.)

The order prohibiting Aaron from blogging will, of course, be reversed. It’s just a question of when.

What is needed is an immediate stay of the unconstitutional portions of the judge’s order, and an injunction against Kimberlin’s seeking another peace order based on public speech about a public figure.

In the meantime, I advise Eugene to be careful. These aren’t your average Internet opponents. They’re dangerous, nasty, evil people, and they will probably try to come after him on a personal level, as they do with anyone who tries to help us.

UPDATE: Forgot to add, the good Professor is doing this pro bono. Good for him.

Stacy McCain Connects More Dots on Neal Rauhauser

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:34 am

Here. Good reading on HB Gary and the way all this started:

Having pointed out all these dots in the pattern, do I really need to connect them for the perceptive reader? Rauhauser’s February conspiracy-theory treatise (“Andrew Breitbart’s ISR Cell?”) shows his ongoing obsession with the HBGary “Anonymous” hacking as well as WeinerGate– and the “Weiner Truthers” at the “Breitbart Unmasked” site are “obsessed with hacking and related matters.”

Kimberlin has been targeting Patterico since October 2010, and it was evidently Rauhauser’s anti-Patterico blogging that brought him into Kimberlin’s orbit so that, by October 2011, Rauhauser seemed to be describing Kimberlin as his client.

I suspect the relationship between the two was there before Rauhauser’s anti-Patterico blogging — and was the cause for it. Still, Stacy’s post is worth a read.
