CASE ENTRY

Kimberlin v. Frey

On personal blog, prosecutor writes a series of posts on litigious political activist with a criminal past; the activist complains to the prosecutor’s superiors; the posts are not altered. A still-unidentified hoax caller then triggers a SWAT raid of the prosecutor’s home. District court: The activist cannot sue the prosecutor for seeking to have him investigated for playing a role in the hoax. Fourth Circuit: That’s so.
