* Maine Blogger Wins In Free Speech Case

The best defense to speech is speech.

Maine blogger Lance Dutson, who has been critical of the Maine Office of Tourism and their web advertising contractor Warren Kremer Pain, won a victory after Warren Kremer Paino withdrew its defmation lawsuit against the Maine blogger today (http://www.mainewebreport.com/2006/05/05/warren-kremer-paino-withdraws-lawsuit/).

To paraphrase Oliver Wendell Holmes, sometimes the best defense to speech is speech.

I sent along my congratulations, as I am a lawyer, blogger, and Mainer (at heart, lived in Maine for about 15 years but wasn’t born there, so I can’t claim the “Mainer” title)!
