Remember the ACLU got their panties in a wad because certain websites weren't accessible to Metro Nashville and Knox County public school students and they filed a lawsuit to get the Internet filters removed? Both systems promptly caved and removed the filter but the lawsuit hasn't been withdrawn.
I got a press release this afternoon from June Griffin an East Tennessee woman whose had enough of the ACLU running things and is fighting back. From her press release:
"Mrs. Griffin, who is representing herself, stated that she resented the ACLU's being paid out of tax dollars for their legal fees, under 42 USC 1988. She further cited contradictions in the various statutes, which collide with each other and leave the judges in a position of arbitrary power which she states is contrary to the Tennessee Declaration of Rights which forbids arbitrary power by condemning those who hold the doctrine of non-resistance to such arbitrary power."She's not alone in her resentment of this organization eating up so many finite taxpayer resources in their effort to remake America. Further, they tend to work the last nerve of a great number of folks in this county.
According to the press release, Mrs. Griffin was also involved in the posting of the Ten Commandments fight.
I spoke with the Court Clerk's office this morning. They told me that Judge William J. Haynes must first rule on whether he'll even allow her motion and no there's not regular motion docket.
Here's the beginning of Mrs. Griffin's 'Motion to Intervene":
