    Her name is mentioned on the billboard (NANI is a fake acronym which just happens to be her first name).

    .
    Yep pretty much what I said earlier, now that some people actually read the stories and know what this dip**** did I wonder how many want to change their vote.

    Im Glad the judge knew what the right call was and the jerkoff has to take it down. I hope he doesnt do it, like he is threatening not to, and he goes to jail that will make me giggle. Free speech is great but it doesnt cover the above and addressing fathers rights is fine also but this aint gonna help one bit. Nobody wasnt to associate themselves with this clown who is a woman harasser.

    Good call judge!

By my logic she can force him not to wear a condomn?? Dude?? Lay off the Canadian hash!! No more trips to Vancouver for you!!
    I've never been, actually, nor have I ever tried "Canadian hash."

    Once you can pick up the pill at your local grocery or drug store without a prescription for a few bucks, then the two are the same. You have to have access to healthcare in order to purchase more advanced forms of birth control like the pill or the depo shot and diaphragms are quite rare outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic.

If she has the option to terminate the pregnancy and basically walk away.. He should have the same option, should she decide to have it..
    So you never said he could force her NOT to have it (a claim I never made) while in the same post you claim that if she can get an abortion, he should be able to force her to. Something about this doesn't add up...

    If it's intentionally placed in a prominent area where she would see it on a day-to-day basis with the intent of harassing her, then yes, it really is.

    Informing the general public that your ex girlfriend Nani had a surgical procedure is indeed a disclosure of medical records which weren't his to disclose. Hence, a violation of the right to privacy.

    It is if you are claiming smoking caused someone else cancer and they had to get surgery, if they haven't given you permission.

    If we could figure it out after 5 minutes, I would imagine it would be easier for someone who lived in their town and who knew these people.

    Just big black letters on a white background.
    Would just show she had poor taste in bedding a "limp-dicked, greasy haired, overweight sterile pansy" in the first place and creating a life with one in the second.

    Anyhow - he wouldn't be able to complain unless she specifically named him or identified him in her poster / billboard. I keep having trouble with the posted links but until he created the organisation N.A.N.I, I believe he should not be forced to take down the billboard if she was not directly named.

    Having created the name N.A.N.I. I think he's left himself wide open to charges of libel and having harassed her.

    All you get from following someone into a cesspool is filthy.

    The acronym was removed from the billboard. Without any reference whatsoever to who the "ex-girlfriend" might be, I don't see what the law can do about it.

    I don't feel sorry for her. She picked the goofball.
    Yeah, I'm having a hard time feeling any sympathy whatsoever. I don't mean to sound snobbish or anything, but this all sounds like trailer-trash soap opera material to me.

    Yes, but occasionally the stench from the trailer park gets so bad you have to send in men with flamethrowers to cleanse it.

How about a billboard disclosing your medical history with cancer, mental illness, alcoholism, or some other condition that causes your insurance company to cancel your health coverage and that prospective employer to turn you away?

    I cannot believe there is even one person out there who believes this crap should be legal.
    Personally I do not see what all the fuss is about when it comes to medical procedures. If my medical files were public it wouldn't bother me at all. I just do not understand why people feel violated over them. None of the examples you listed would I try and keep private. I am what I am for better or worse, why hide it?

    Kept away how? A camp? Jail? I used the tongue example because even if you kept them away from whatever you call "civilized people", they can still talk to each other and spread their rascally dissent amongst others.
