+ - Judge Orders Man To Delete Revenge Blog->

Submitted by nonprofiteer
nonprofiteer (1906180) writes "A Minnesota man violated a restraining order obtained by his ex-girlfriend by blogging about her mental health and sexual issues, and sending links to posts on the blog to her family, friends, and co-workers.The judge then extended the restraining order by 50 years, ordered the guy never to write about his ex on the Internet and ordered him to delete the blog he created. Even though there was no evidence that what he had written was false, the judge said the ex-gf's "right to be free from harassment" outweighed the guy's "right to free speech."

“I believe it’s rare, if not unprecedented, for a court to order an entire blog deleted,” says technology law professor Eric Goldman.
