Free Speech hero passes away

 

Isn’t if funny how our society has a double standard when it comes to lawyers?  If you are a defense attorney for murderers, pedophiles or cannibals, you are just fine – but defend Holocaust denier and you are smeared by association…

I’ve met Doug Christy only once, at a courthouse where I was spectating in a free speech case, but he impressed me as highly intelligent and very professional.  A tireless fighter for the freedom of speech – he will be missed!
