I’ve always been a committed fan of free speech. More than a fan, actually: it was something I believed in fighting for.
In my previous career as an Internet professional I became more and more concerned that when it came to speech taking place over the Internet, free speech values were too easily being compromised. I went to law school in order to put myself in a position to do something about it. So when I saw the Popehat Signal seeking a lawyer’s assistance to defend someone’s speech, I knew I had to answer the call.
