INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY: IBD At Kimberlin Hearing: Walker Handcuffed, 1st Amendment Muzzled. “Here’s what seems to have happened. Although Kimberlin’s first peace order against Walker was eventually thrown out on appeal, it appears that while it was in effect Walker wrote a blog post about Kimberlin. This triggered a Google Alert that Kimberlin had set up. Kimberlin filed criminal charges based on that, apparently claiming that constituted “contact.” The court apparently agreed, and Walker was arrested.”

Walker also made a major error by representing himself. No lawyer should do that in anything more than a minor traffic offense. This goes double for Yale Law grads. . . .

UPDATE: “As best as I can tell, Aaron Walker was arrested today in the United States of America for blogging about a public figure.”
