Civil Rights – Plaintiff Can Sue for Website ‘Chilling Effect’ (access required)

Cooksey v. Futrell A plaintiff who operated a “Diabetes Warrior” website advising on the “Paleolithic” diet for diabetics can sue on a First Amendment claim after a state agency that licenses dieticians sent him a “red-pen” review of “areas of concern” that could be construed as the unlicensed practice of dietetics; the 4th Circuit says the district court erred in holding that plaintiff did not have standing to sue.
