Harvard’s Citizen Media Law Project, a part of the Berkman Center, is my new best friend:
In perhaps the most blatant misuse of the subpoena power we’ve seen since the subpoena served on Kathleen Seidel of Neurodiversity last March, a lawyer for Thomas Garrett of Virginia has served a patently overbroad subpoena on blogger Waldo Jaquith, who publishes cvillenews.com,
a community news blog about Charlottesville, Virginia.
They go on. And on. And on. It’s just a joy to read. Working on my motion to quash this week, I was wondering if I was just delusional in thinking that the facts in this case area really, really clearly on my side, and that this subpoena is abusively broad. Turns out that I was onto something.
This is not the first time that the Berkman Center has helped me out. I’m a big fan of their work. Let’s see if Tommy Garrett sues the Harvard Law School now. I’d pay good money to see that.
