I previously blogged on the New York libel tourism prevention law and how Rep Peter King (R-NY) introduced federal legislation that would serve the same purpose. See New York steps up to the plate – passes “Libel Terrorism Protection Act”.
Aside from its stupidly Orwellian name, the Act is a brilliant piece of legislation. Apparently, Arlen Specter and Joe Lieberman agree. See Foreign Courts Take Aim at Our Free Speech. There can’t be too much controversy when even Joe Lieberman agrees with me on a free speech issue.
