Corzine administration unfriendly to the 1st Amendment?

It looks like the governor will be named in a suit citing infringement on the 1st amendment rights of free speech.

A radio show host arrested while protesting an appearance at which Gov. Jon S. Corzine discussed a plan to raise highway tolls can move ahead with his lawsuit, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Lawyers for Corzine and other state and local officials had asked U.S. District Judge Jerome Simandle to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Seth Grossman and members of the group Liberty and Prosperity 1776, who claim their right to free speech was trampled and are seeking unspecified money damages.

The judge said he would issue a full written opinion on his decision in about a week, but he indicated where he was headed after arguments on Tuesday.

“A case will survive this decision,” he said, telling the parties to prepare to exchange information.

    You tell me, is this anything other than the denial of rights guaranteed by both the federal and state constitutions?

  2. Cheers! It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
