Temporary Victory: Aaron Walker’s First Amendment Rights Restored; Judge Stays Brett Kimberlin’s “Peace Order” Against Him

The “peace order” issued by an incompetent judge had stripped Aaron Walker of his First Amendment rights, ordering him to not mention Brett Kimberlin publicly.

That order has been stayed, with a full hearing to decide if the order should stand or fall on July 5th. Note, however, that emergency relief (as here) is usually given only when there is a “substantial” likelihood of prevailing on the ultimate merits, so, at the moment, it seems likely the peace order will be struck down on July 5th, too.
