ONLINE FREE SPEECH: Judge won’t seek to limit online comments on carjack case. “A Knox County judge this afternoon issued an order refusing to require local media to shut down anonymous commentary allowed on their Web sites. Criminal Court Judge Richard Baumgartner’s ruling comes in the case of the fatal carjacking and torture slaying of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.” This is the right decision, not least because such an order would be unconstitutional, and probably in violation of statute, too.
