    A court order prohibiting a Hunterdon County woman from writing about her family on Facebook and elsewhere was deemed constitutional last week by an appeals court.
    The woman, identified in court papers only as H.L.M., was ordered as a condition of her probation to stop posting about her children and ex-husband. Her online writings, which mentioned the Book of Revelations, Jeffrey Dahmer, Satan and Adolph Hitler, were called “rambling, irrational, disturbing, bizarre” by a judge.

    But the woman argued that the ban was overly vague and restrictive of her First Amendment liberties.
    In the appellate ruling, issued on May 13 by judges John Kennedy and Michael Guadagno, the court disagreed, saying the decision did not restrict H.L.M. from writing about anything other than her family, and was directed at protecting her children, whom she abducted three years ago. more at link: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/20...n_facebook_is_constitutional_court_rules.html
