Her case went to the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which ruled last Friday. SHE WON!! Read the decision here.
One of the more entertaining side shows of last spring (read link from the bottom), which in the summer and fall (ditto) insinuated itself into the governor’s race, was that of Leominster mom Mary Jean who received a letter threatening felony charges from State Police associated with former Worcester County DA John Conte for posting a video to her anti-Conte web site of a man being arrested in his home without a warrant. Ms. Jean won a restraining order AGAINST THE STATE POLICE (!!!), protecting her right to post that video. Then AG Tom Reilly appealed that order and late last week that appeal failed. This is a victory for Internet freedom, bellyaching by Sabutai, MaverickDem, rightmiddleleft, and CentralMassDad not withstanding. Maybe it is time for Tom Reilly and his apoligists on BMG to finally offer Mary Jean an apology. I have a feeling this is still not the last shoe to drop on this case.
