Now, the question is, whether my Tribunal agrees, and if they think that a private citizen who happens to have a law license, will be protected by our beloved First Amendment when she faces disciplinary proceedings for blogging.

 

Oh my, there’s blogging going on in the courtroom, what will we do?

 

I would vote the Tribunal should just reread the First Amendment, but that’s IMHO.
