Rocky and Jeff In Court

Posted: September 6, 2007 in Freedom of Expression

I’m really curious why the cases are tossed around so much from this date to another date. I think it often happens with cases such as these don’t you think?? Why don’t they just set a date and get it over with? Oh well here is the update on Rocky and Jeff Cases;

Both bloggers have been sued by NSTP for defamation, a case that started early this year and still hasn’t ended yet. What will be the outcome I wonder? Will bloggers be rid of the shackles that bind them? Will the Bill of Guarantees once again prove to be merely a myth? I guess we will have to wait and see! In the meantime I wish both Rocky and Jeff the courage and persistence to fight for what they believe in and to remain strong in this struggle. For I will walk with you..
