Blogger Drops First Amendment Lawsuit

There's now a settlement in a lawsuit filed by a former political blogger against the State of Kentucky.

Mark Nickolas, who once operated bluegrassreport.org, has agreed to drop his federal First Amendment lawsuit.

His website was blocked by state government computers by former Governor Ernie Fletcher’s administration.

As part of the settlement, the state says it will only block access to blogs in a "viewpoint neutral standard that's equally applied."
