Allie Overstreet’s attorney files a Motion for a Protective Order and Gag Order

Matthew-J-OConnor

Allie Overstreet’s attorney files a Motion for a Protective Order and Gag Order.

Attorney Matthew J. O’Connor would like to gag Bill Windsor.  It seems that he and Allie Overstreet would like to find a way to stop me from publishing the truth.

Matthew J. O’Connor tried to raise this issue at a hearing on July 16, 2013.  I told the judge that I have  First Amendment right as a 40-year member of the press to publish, and I cannot be gagged.  Judge Dennis Rolf said to me that the First Amendment doesn’t give someone the right to say anything.  I responded that it doesn’t give Allie Overstreet and others the right to libel and defame me, but as long as I tell the truth, which I always do, I can publish those truths.  And if they feel I have defamed me, then please, please SUE ME.  The judge told Matthew J. O’Connor that he will have a tough time getting past the First Amendment.
