    The question here is amid the great news this gentleman received is “Why did she NOT strike the law as is?” She should have. There are other examples of such striking. Is it regional thinking? Why would she do that as a federally appointed judge? That needs to be asked of her.

    I’m overjoyed to be repeatedly hear judge’s applying that wonderful word to RSO restriction: “Unconstitutional”. Damn right, they’re Unconstitutional!! ☺☺☺
    *P.S.: Post by our comments to the article. (No Facebook requirement needed to comment. )

    Equally enjoyable is the article’s final sentence: “[Judge] Springmann said a future conference will be set to consider Valenti’s damages.”

    The dominoes are falling one by one….

    Here’s another court finding that conditions imposed by Registry are “PUNITIVE”, same as “being on probation”.

    Registration should END when Probation ends. PERIOD.
