Court: Mom can be banned from ranting on Facebook

FLEMINGTON, N.J. – A New Jersey appellate court has ruled that a mother’s rights were not violated by a judge’s ruling that barred her from ranting about her children and ex-husband on Facebook.

The Courier News (http://mycj.co/S442I0) reports the judge’s 2011 order was a special condition of the woman’s probation stemming from an attempt to kidnap her two children and take them to Canada.

Her ex-husband’s family and Hunterdon County prosecutors had argued the woman’s Facebook postings were frightening, saying they referenced the Book of Revelation, serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, Satan and Adolf Hitler.

The woman said the order violated her rights of free speech and due process because it was too vague.

The appellate panel disagreed, finding the order was specific and didn’t prevent her from making posts about other issues.
