Mindspring Pulls Nuremberg Site

Internet service provider Mindspring removed "The Nuremberg Files" Web site from the Internet on Friday after site creator Neal Horsley pledged to publish live video of women entering abortion clinics, in violation of Mindspring's "appropriate use" policies.

Horsley reported that Mindspring had "pulled the plug without prior notice" and is currently housing his site within another Web site at http://www.riverpup.com/abortion/files.html. America Online is the Internet service provider for this site. Complaints can be sent to AOL at abuse@aol.com.

"The Nuremberg Files" Web site publishes the pictures, names, addresses, social security numbers, and license plate numbers of abortion providers, pro-choice activists, and other individuals site creators accuse of "crimes against humanity." The spouses and children of these individuals are also targeted through the site.

Last week, site creators were ordered to pay $107.9 million in damages to abortion providers and other individuals whose names were listed on the site after jurors agreed that site creators had violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) and federal racketeering laws by inciting violence against abortion doctors and their patients.
