Judge Forbids Anti-Abortion Web Site and "Wanted" Posters
Three weeks after a federal jury ruled that creators of "The Nuremberg Files" Web site violated federal anti-racketeering laws and the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones ruled that The Nuremberg Files Web site and "wanted" posters featuring abortion doctors amounted to "blatant and illegal communication of true threats to kill."
"I totally reject the defendants' attempts to justify their actions as an expression of opinion or as a legitimate and lawful exercise of free speech," wrote Jones in his injunction, which prohibits plaintiffs and those working "in concert with plaintiffs" from contributing to the Nuremberg Web site or wanted posters. The injunction also ordered plaintiffs to turn any other similar materials over to authorities. Violators of the injunction may face criminal prosecution and fines of up to $1,000 a day.
The injunction does not specifically apply to Nuremberg creator Neal Horsley because he was not named as a defendant in the suit. However, Horsley has had difficulty in maintaining and keeping an Internet provider for his site. According to the Associated Press, two different Internet service providers have shut down the site in the past month.
