PSA…with guitar

A writer criticizes a political figure more powerful than himself. The political figure sues the writer (for a small amount, small enough to land the suit in small-claims court, where it’s exempt from anti- legal-harassment laws), and wins the lawsuit. The writer is given no information as to exactly what his offense was, or what he should do differently in the future. Oh, and it would appear that the material he was being sued over was not even his own.

Unfortunately, this is America, now (California, specifically), and not one of those other bad-guy countries we hear about.

Here‘s the blogger’s description of the issues of the lawsuit, and here‘s his essay on the principles involved.
