Can someone stop you from linking to their website? That's what the Sheboygan city attorney did. The city ordered Jennifer Reisinger to remove a link to the city's police department website - and now, she is suing:
Can a city stop people from posting a link to its Web site?
That’s the question at the center of a federal lawsuit brought by a Sheboygan woman against the mayor and other officials there, in what appears to be a first-of-its-kind case, according to an Internet law expert.
Jennifer Reisinger says the Sheboygan city attorney ordered her to remove from her Web site a link to the city’s police department, in what she believes was retaliation for her support of recalling Mayor Juan Perez, according to the suit filed last week.
The city went further, the lawsuit claims, launching a criminal investigation of Reisinger for linking to the department on one of her sites.
