When a resident Superior Court Judge does not understand the meaning of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, our nation is truly lost. Any person, whom is a public figure (like an elected official) is/should be open to criticism by the public. That is the basis of our system. I'd say that the First Amendment protects the defendant in this case to a greater extent than if the judge was just a normal citizen or a business owner who is protecting a real "brand". Unfortunately, Your Dishonor, your "brand" was given to you by the voters whom trusted that you would fairly and impartially interpret/apply the laws of this state not inconsistent with the NC and US Constitutions. By your filing of this lawsuit, in an effort to suppress the free speech of citizens in this community, you are a bully. You are abusing your position in an effort to intimidate a citizen from exercising on of their fundamental rights. For that, you should be truly ashamed.
