Ind. Courts - More on "Indiana Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Oral Arguments in Brewington"

Updating this ILB entry from June 7th, EAGLECOUNTRY 99.3FM has a story today - a few quotes:

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A jailed blogger who targeted a Dearborn County judge with his internet writings will have his appeal heard by the Indiana Supreme Court.

Dan Brewington’s story has made national headlines and caught the attention of First Amendment advocates across the country. Eagle 99.3 has been covering the story since Brewington was indicted for Intimidation of a Judge and other charges in 2010. * * *

The justices’ decision would likely come weeks or months later, which might have little impact on Brewington’s stay behind bars. According to the Indiana Department of Corrections, his earliest possible release from prison is September 15.

See this March 13th ILB post and its links to access all the briefs in the appeal.
