"A Win for Bloggers and The First Amendment’s Protection of Citizens’ Freedom of Speech"

"A win for blogger Crystal Cox, thanks to her lawyers, Eugene Volokh and, submitting an amicus brief, Tom Goldstein, from SCOTUS blog:

The protections of the First Amendment do not turn on whether the defendant [is] a trained journalist, formally affiliated with traditional news entities, … a First Amendment distinction between the institutional press and other speakers is unworkable…With the advent of the Internet and the decline of print and broadcast media . . . the line between the media and others who wish to comment on political and social issues becomes far more blurred."

Also Note, I am VERY Thankful to Eugene Volokh, my lawyer and to Tom Goldstein of SCOTUS, however, one must NOTE that they were defending the case, as I had preserved it Pro Se. One must preserve the elements in the lower court that are used in the higher court, as most lawyers know. There can be no more, or new evidence introduced, they defend the case I presented.
