I fought the law and … I WON!!! 6


saga1) It’s not over … the battle continues.

I will NOT back down … and I will NOT WAIVER!!!

We will take the fight to the enemy until this war is won!

 

2) The courts had said that I was not harmed when the state board of dietetics told me to sit down and shut up …

… of course I disagreed and so did the Institute for Justice  (IJ).  We appealed to the US Court of Appeals in Richmond, VA. Coincidentally, former Supreme Court Judge Sandra Day O’Connor heard my case!

** YESTERDAY I learned that the court agreed with ME!!!!  

The attorneys emailed me about the case … but the first I heard about it was from  Sara Burrows  a writer for the “Carolina Journal” and “Food Riot Radio” messaged me about the case…  and I checked the IJ Facebook Page and saw this.

FREE SPEECH VICTORY: This morning, a federal court held that IJ client and diabetic blogger Steve Cooksey’s First Amendment lawsuit against a North Carolina licensing board may go forward.

We WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Wooo hoo!

But … what about the future?  I thought this meant that the fight continued, but I was not sure until I read this in the articles below.

“The case, which has received significant national media attention, will now be sent back to the district court.”

WILL NOW BE SENT BACK TO THE DISTRICT COURT!!!

BOOO YOW!!! :)

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you… for all of the support and well wishes….

… it does mean much!

Here are links to the case… thanks to INSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE!

    SO sorry you have had to go through such an awful ordeal, just because you speak about what you eat and how you exercise. It’s mind boggling. Please be assured that your blog provides us with valuable and vital information. Diabetes is bad enough without you having to endure this stressful situation. Best of luck. I look forward to reading your future posts.
