Ind. Decisions - More on: 7th Circuit declares unconstitutional Ind. law prohibiting registered sex offenders from using social networking websites

Updating this ILB entry from Jan. 23rd, the AP is reporting that:

American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana legal director Ken Falk said Thursday that the attorney general's office would not ask the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago to rehear the case.

The court said in January that the 2008 law was too broad and violated freedom of speech.

SB 347, which passed the Senate 49-0, is now in the House Committee on Courts and Criminal Code.
