Law Firm Defends Diabetes Warrior Blogger

This just arrived in my email:

Today the Institute for Justice will file a First Amendment case in North Carolina, where our client, Steve Cooksey, is being threatened with criminal charges for sharing through his website dietary tips and advice that saved his life. State officials are demanding that Steve acquire a government-issued dietician’s license in order to offer insights through a Dear Abby-style column.


To learn more, please watch this short video about the case: www.ij.org/paleospeechvideo.

Thank you for making this and all our work possible.

The Institute for Justice has a history of winning First Amendment and burdensome regulation cases--so I'm encouraged. And the low-carb revolution in Sweden took off from a lawsuit.
