Victory at Trial

Theresa Sidebotham of Telios Law and co-counsel Craig Shultz of Shultz Law are celebrating a victory at trial in Wichita, Kansas. Five years ago, our client wrote a strong letter to a would-be abortionist about common consequences of that lifestyle. Against the recommendations of the FBI, which did not think the letter was a threat, the Department of Justice decided to sue her. The lawsuit was dismissed by the district court, and the DOJ appealed to the Tenth Circuit and got a reversal. This week, we finally went to trial against the DOJ’s D.C. attorneys, and the jury found in our client’s favor. This was an important victory in defending the First Amendment, both for free speech and religious speech.
