Pullins Pulls His Complaint

From the Dispatch:

    Lawyer and lobbyist Scott Pullins has dismissed his request for a stalking protection order against a woman he claimed harassed him over the Internet.

    Pullins’ request for an order to block the woman from posting comments about him had been scheduled for a hearing yesterday in Knox County Common Pleas Court.

    Pullins said he dropped the case because area messageboard operators had made changes to regulate content, making it more difficult for posters to attack people.
I'm disappointed. The case promised a happy combination of sordid mudslinging and wonk-friendly boundary setting precedent.
