ImageGood News Facebook fans – We were surprised earlier this spring when a federal district court judge ruled that “liking” a politician’s FB page was not protected speech under the First Amendment; this seemed to us to be an excellent example of a court having an outdated view of how people communicate today and, as a result, not being able to properly apply the First Amendment.  Thankfully, the Fourth Circuit has reversed the District Court’s granting of summary judgment and allowed that aspect of the case to move forward.
For more information of the subject read this article from the American Bar Association, which includes a link to the opinion (and keep hitting that “like” button).
