Judge In Rob Riley's Lawsuit Violates 230 years of U.S. Law To Impose Prior Restraint On Reports



Judge Claud D. Neilson
An Alabama judge's preliminary injunction in a defamation case runs counter to more than 230 years of case law on free speech in the United States.

Circuit Judge Claud D. Neilson issued a ruling dated October 1, 2013, ordering me not to write about certain issues involving Alabama Republican Rob Riley and lobbyist Liberty Duke. Neilson also ordered me to remove certain posts from Legal Schnauzer and went so far as to seal the entire file--with no apparent legal justification--and forbid any reporting on the case.

If all of that sounds unlawful to you, that's because it is. In fact, Neilson's order has to be a contender for one of the most outrageous legal documents in American history. It reads like something that might have originated from a court in Saddam Hussein's Iraq. (If you don't believe me, check out the order that Rob Riley and Judge Neilson don't want you to see, at the end of this post.)

So what is going on? Based on recent press reports and Riley's bizarre actions, it seems clear that he wants my posts to go away so he can pursue the U.S. House seat that Spencer Bachus is vacating. Judge Neilson apparently feels a Rob Riley candidacy is so important that it justifies trashing the U.S. and Alabama constitutions.

Neilson's order is unlawful on probably a half dozen grounds, starting with the fact that the defendants (my wife and me) have not been lawfully served, meaning the court has no jurisdiction over us. For now, we will focus on only one flaw in the Neilson document--that it constitutes a flagrant example of impermissible "prior restraint" on freedom of the press. (For a brief discussion of the relevant legal principles, see video at the end of this post.)

The U.S. Supreme Court has made it clear on numerous occasions that preliminary injunctions are unlawful in cases alleging any form of defamation (libel or slander). One of the most recent cases is styled Alexander v. United States, 509 U.S. 544 (1993). From the Alexander opinion, authored by Chief Justice William Rehnquist:


The term "prior restraint" is used "to describe administrative and judicial orders forbidding certain communications when issued in advance of the time that such communications are to occur." M. Nimmer, Nimmer on Freedom of Speech § 4.03, p. 4-14 (1984) (emphasis added). Temporary restraining orders and permanent injunctions—i. e., court orders that actually forbid speech activities—are classic examples of prior restraints. . . . This understanding of what constitutes a prior restraint is borne out by our cases. . . . In Near v. Minnesota ex rel. Olson, supra, we invalidated a court order that perpetually enjoined the named party, who had published a newspaper containing articles found to violate a state nuisance statute, from producing any future "malicious, scandalous or defamatory" publication. . . . Near, therefore, involved a true restraint on future speech—a permanent injunction. . . . 

Rehnquist hardly could be characterized as a wild-eyed liberal. Appointed to the Supreme Court by Richard Nixon, the late Rehnquist now is seen by many court watchers as a precursor to such right-wing firebrands as Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. If Rob Riley can't abide by Rehnquist's findings, it raises serious questions about the Alabamian's conservative "credentials."

Even more background on the bedrock principle of prior restraint can be found in a case that Rehnquist cited in Alexander. It's styled Near v. Minnesota, 283 U.S. 697 (1931), and it involved a state statute that provided for the "abatement" as a public nuisance of any newspaper that was found to produce "malicious, scandalous, and defamatory" content.

The nation's highest court quickly found that the Minnesota statute collided with fundamental constitutional protections:


This statute, for the suppression as a public nuisance of a newspaper or periodical, is unusual, if not unique, and raises questions of grave importance transcending the local interests involved in the particular action. It is no longer open to doubt that the liberty of the press, and of speech, is within the liberty safeguarded by the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment from invasion by state action. I

The Supreme Court then unmasked the Minnesota statute, revealing its true intent:


The object of the statute is not punishment, in the ordinary sense, but suppression of the offending newspaper or periodical. . . . This suppression is accomplished by enjoining publication and that restraint is the object and effect of the statute. . . . The statute not only operates to suppress the offending newspaper or periodical but to put the publisher under an effective censorship.

In language that has been in place for 82 years, the Near court goes straight to the mindset of Rob Riley and Judge Neilson in 2013:


When a newspaper or periodical is found to be "malicious, scandalous and defamatory," and is suppressed as such, resumption of publication is punishable as a contempt of court by fine or imprisonment. Thus, where a newspaper or periodical has been suppressed because of the circulation of charges against public officers of official misconduct, it would seem to be clear that the renewal of the publication of such charges would constitute a contempt and that the judgment would lay a permanent restraint upon the publisher, to escape which he must satisfy the court as to the character of a new publication. Whether he would be permitted again to publish matter deemed to be derogatory to the same or other public officers would depend upon the court's ruling.

Are Rob Riley and Judge Neilson trying to engage in unlawful censorship? The language of the Near court leaves no doubt that the answer is yes.


If we cut through mere details of procedure, the operation and effect of the statute in substance is that public authorities may bring the owner or publisher of a newspaper or periodical before a judge upon a charge of conducting a business of publishing scandalous and defamatory matter — in particular that the matter consists of charges against public officers of official dereliction — and unless the owner or publisher is able and disposed to bring competent evidence to satisfy the judge that the charges are true and are published with good motives and for justifiable ends, his newspaper or periodical is suppressed and further publication is made punishable as a contempt. This is of the essence of censorship.

In finding the Minnesota statute unlawful, the Near court notes that its ruling is grounded in state-court cases dating back 150 years. Considering that Near was decided in 1931, that means the opinion has roots in the early 1780s:


The fact that for approximately one hundred and fifty years there has been almost an entire absence of attempts to impose previous restraints upon publications relating to the malfeasance of public officers is significant of the deep-seated conviction that such restraints would violate constitutional right. Public officers, whose character and . . .  conduct remain open to debate and free discussion in the press, find their remedies for false accusations in actions under libel laws providing for redress and punishment, and not in proceedings to restrain the publication of newspapers and periodicals. The general principle that the constitutional guaranty of the liberty of the press gives immunity from previous restraints has been approved in many decisions under the provisions of state constitution.

What's the bottom line? If Rob Riley and Liberty Duke think my reports are false and defamatory, they can try to prove it under existing libel laws. But they cannot seek to restrain my reporting in advance, without any finding that it is defamatory.

As an attorney with a degree from Yale School of Law, Rob Riley surely is familiar with these fundamental legal principles. That he has filed such a lawsuit anyway means he should be subject to serious sanctions, including possible suspension of his bar card. 

Judge Neilson also has to know about prior restraint and its foundations. That he issued a blatantly unlawful order on such a fundamental issue suggests he should be the target of an Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission (AJIC) investigation, similar to the one recently launched against Jefferson County Circuit Judge Dorothea Batiste.

The charges against Batiste, which resulted in a three-month suspension, pale in comparison to Neilson's proven actions in the Riley case. Based on the AJIC's actions against Batiste, powerful grounds exist for removing Neilson from the bench.

Batiste, of course, is a black female, while Neilson is a white male. Will skin color protect one judge while it caused another to receive intense scrutiny? Is AJIC a fundamentally racist organization? We might soon find out the answers to the those questions.

I just don't understand why these 'retired' judges are brought out of the attic to hear BS cases like this. Aren't there enough Riley-loving ones on the active payroll that we could un-elect for capers like this? Where is the document saying the AL 'Supreme' court appointed this clown?

If this law has only been around for 230 years, that's probably not enough time for it to get through Rob Riley's thick skull.

I'm trying to do some math. If my history is correct, the country was founded in 1776. If the case law on free speech goes back 230 years or so that means . . . gee, this law only dates from the beginning of the country!

This is a classic SLAPP suit, with no grounding in fact or law. It's designed to intimidate me into not reporting on the Rob Riley/Liberty Duke affair. It has nothing to do with defamation or justice. It has everything to do with Rob Riley's desire to cover up his sleazy past to run for Spencer Bachus' seat. I feel certain they plan for the intimidation to work, and therefore, Ms. Lib won't have any significant legal expenses.

I'm confused, LS. The document embedded in this post says a temporary restraining order was issued in this case. And it says the Alabama Supreme Court specially appointed Neilson to this case. Were you made aware of any of this? The court seems to be acting as if there is only one party in this proceeding. In fact, of course, there are two.

legalschnauzer said...

You are confused, 9:03, because I'm confused. And we're both confused because the court is acting corruptly. I never received notice of a temporary restraining order, I didn't even have knowledge of the complaint at the time. And I've received zero information about Neilson and why he was appointed. You are right on target about the court acting as if only one party is involved.

This is a momentous day: Roger actually is correct about a legal issue for what is surely the first time. The Judge's order is an impermissible prior restraint. Of course, Roger is absolutely and unequivocally wrong on the issue of whether he has been served. You were personally served with the court papers by a deputy sheriff as provided for in rule 4(c)(1) and (i)(1)(C). There is no law that says the deputy can't serve you while also giving you a traffic warning, even if you dispute the basis for the warning (good luck with that). You are on record as having received the papers and thrown them out the window of your car. Instead of appearing in court and arguing against the legality of the Judge's order, you get on your blog and call him a whore. Brilliant!

LS...for some reason you didn't post my comments yesterday. I'm a fan of your blog. I'm also a practicing attorney in this State and have been for over 25 years. And I'm a Democrat. Trust me...you've been served. The fact that you threw the papers out of the window after you received them doesn't matter nor how you received them. Service was perfected like it or not. Your continued posts which include copies of the filings prove you've been served. Service is notice and you have more than notice. Now is your chance to "out" Riley through discovery. IF your posts are truthful and you can prove it that is an absolute defense to a libel/slander suit, i.e. Truth and you'll be a hero. If, on the other hand, you can't prove it you're liable and you'll lose all credibility. Stop hiding behind your computer screen and your locked doors and fight this case in Court and start the discovery process, i.e. DEPOSITIONS, etc.

Can you cite any law that says it's OK for a deputy to serve papers during a traffic stop, unlawful or otherwise? Of course you can't.

Let's put the burden on you and see how you handle it.

I would be infuriated if a deputy pulled that stunt on me, and I suspect you would be, too--except you aren't honest enough to admit it.

And it's not just a matter of being mad. It's a civil rights violation. Traffic stops are for traffic violations. You don't detain someone with no legal grounds to do so.

If you don't understand that, you are clinically ignorant.

It boggles the mind that anyone would seriously argue the Shelby County deputy acted lawfully in serving these papers.

The issue here is detainment. When an officer stops someone for an alleged traffic stop, he detains that person, limits their movement, deprives them of freedom (at least temporarily). That is not to be done lightly, without probable cause that a traffic violation has been committed.

There is nothing in the law that says it's proper to detain someone in order to serve court papers.

Hell, at election time, you could have deputies stopping people and saying, "Oh, by the way, here's a pamphlet for you to vote for Sheriff Jones. He's our boss, and we want you to vote for him. And please watch your speed."

Witnessed nationally the obvious concerned Alabamians for incorruptible government publicly which has risen, especially, ever since the Canary/Rove, Riley/Pryor orchestrated late night manipulating the outcome for the 2002 governor's race, denying Siegelman his outright win, or win by recount.


Now a little over ten years past, what does appear? Is it KARL ROVE? Yes! On or about the night of October 6th, speaking before the seventh annual dinner meeting of the Tuscaloosa Lincoln-Regan group.


Whose dime is KARL ROVE flying on?
Has Bill called ROVE back in again for the Riley's? Has Strange already been issued his preliminary instructions and denials ROVE, as apparently Pryor did.
One can only wonder the scope of ROVE conversations with "Republican" leaders [the riley machine]; about Spencer's replacement, Rob and what is it about some small dog who has been found out to have a large dog's growl and bite when seeking out facts and truths involving equal rights, protections, due processes.

To underestimate this canine's friends may very well come around to bite someone believed free from exposures; whereby exposing them publicly and providing a venue to do so via any all litigations which may be styled in matters ID as Murph.


When Riley left office, the Mobile Press Register printed Riley as saying, paraphrasing, the era of corruption is over. Whomever the reporter; if Eddie Curran, believed that, would believe,

Anonymous said...

Roger, you have an excellent lawsuit against the judge who issued the restraining order. Generally, judges are immune from civil suit for acts taken as judges. This is because a judge should not have to wonder every time he makes a ruling whether a disgruntled litigant will file a bogus suit against him.

However, in your case this does not apply. When a judge issues a ruling for which he has no jurisdiction, such as the prior restraint order in your case, he very well may be subject to suit.

Prior restraint of the press is now a well settled area of the law. The court had no jurisdiction to issue the order against you.

Sue the judge! You have a good case. Sue the lawyer for obtaining an illegal court order!

I trust you've filed all the proper complaints in this?

Attorney General Holder, US Marshal, AL BAR, ABA, et al.

You must 'exhaust all your remedies' and the Complaint Process is critical because the law stipulates that the law is supreme and these people have violated the US Constitution and the AL Constitution so they must be reported to the proper authorities for the sake of all US Citizens' rights' to be protected.

Best of luck in getting a huge petition because that would certainly teach the lawbreakers the law lesson of respect.

10/8 @ 11:01, I concur.

My understanding is Judges can indeed be sued. Granted, the immunity is used, however, not in the U.S. Constitution's protection of the 'individual right' and that is, NO MONEY to be demanded, simply the RIGHT -that wasn't honored.

The Judge took jurisdiction, where he does not, not only not have jurisdiction, but he's obviously a corrupt person with a history of ? just like the corrupt are in BIG ALABAMA, where Rove was to cement the puss pond scum of what it is.

Chaos has now become the whirlwind in Alabama and the grim reaper is cleaning up the dead.

Those that chose to kill our US Constitution are deserving of reaping the fruits of their corruption.

"... The nation’s founders understood the threat of corruption in politics and were preoccupied with combating it. The government should be dependent on “the great body of the people,” James Madison wrote, and not “an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it.” If the court is going to help protect American politics from becoming little more than “a disagreement among rich people,” as one observer put it, it should follow its own precedent and uphold the overall contribution limit...."

Regardless of your opinion, if you do not go to court and defend yourself, and if you continue to flaunt court orders, no matter how bad they are, you are going to get yourself thrown in jail.

If you do not like the order, go to court and get it set aside.

You have been served whether you like it or not. If you contest service, file a motion to quash.

The court does not care what your personal feelings are, the court cares what is in the file, and that is apparently that you have been served. You are digging yourself a hole you may not be able to get out of by refusing to defend yourself in court.

Finally, if you look at Rule 65, a Preliminary injunction hearing only requires notice. it does not require that notice be given a set amount of time before the hearing.

The fact that you were served with notice, even if you think it was void, and knew about the hearing but chose not to go because you thought the notice was too close in time to the hearing will not get you much slack.

I strongly advise you to find a competent attorney. Apparently you have kicked over a hornet's nest, and these guys are coming after you hard. Defend yourself in court, or you could lose everything you have. The longer you wait, the worse it will get.

Interesting the first case cite in this opinion is Barber v. Cornerstone which concerns a preliminary injunction against Bingo Bob's Illegal Gambling Task Force headed by David Barber that had raided a Bingo Parlor at Whitehall, AL. The word was that Barber, a former DA, couldn't write the legal briefs to appeal to the St. Supreme Ct. so they called in Rob Riley's brother-in-law who is in one the big Birmingham law firms that LS writes about. Another rumor is that one of the justices on the St. Supreme Ct. allowed this same Bingo Bob so.-in-law to write3 the opinion of the court. Shelby Co. judge cites this case inferring that the preliminary injunction had to do with defamatory language. Read and see if you can where says this. I couldn't.

During the time Bingo Bob was chasing bingo operators, Rob Riley and his law partner formed a corp. with the Crimsonica gang in Tuscaloosa and Milton McGregor to promote gambling in Russia.

IOLTAS, btw are the monies that the BAR had heard twice in front of SCOTUS. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of PROTECTING THEIR IOLTAS.

It is the money taken into the coffers of the attorneys and deposited in the accounts called "CLIENT TRUST" [CTA].

The Client Trust receives interest on the 'money'. Who gets the interest? The argument was to SCOTUS that the 'client' should be entitled to the interest gained on the CTA.

Well as imagined SCOTUS was not in favor of other than the 'legal tribe' controlling all the so called 'money' in the CTAs.

So we get the big fat lie. Madison said the courts needed protecting from being a forum where the 'rich' in the USA fought with the 'rich' and the little people get screwed.

The system is an APARTHEID. When you take the money and make the money digital but, some have to pay debt on this and others that make this system do not. Then add the language to get into a system of supposed laws and 'argue' to PAY for our 'rights'. This is an apartheid because we know which faction is held in contempt and which faction is the South African model and worse than SA, America's systems are all very evil and in control of destroying the law.

The systems in America should have protected Legal Schnauzer and certainly Don Siegelman.

Rather, the apartheid did what it did in SA, destroyed the rights' of Don and yours' and call it legal.
