CASE ENTRY

Maier v. Smith

Wisconsin jury convicts man of threatening two state judges. Due to clerical error, man gets jurors’ names and addresses. Yikes! After serving his time, man sends the jurors unsettling letters asking for their support in getting him a pardon. Double yikes. Another jury convicts him of multiple counts of stalking. And we will not disturb those convictions, says the Seventh Circuit, rejecting a battery of First, Sixth, and 14th Amendment arguments.
