CASE ENTRY

Fusaro v. Cogan

Campaign consultant is criminally prosecuted, convicted of violating Maryland election laws. He obtains a new trial, and a jury acquits. He then seeks to mail a letter criticizing the prosecutor (a political appointee) to Maryland voters. But he’s forbidden access to Maryland’s list of voters because he is a resident of Virginia. Fourth Circuit: Which might violate the First Amendment.
