Social Media and risk of Public Inconvenience
The Oregon Court of Appeals decided today that someone posting obnoxious thoughts on social media sites to private groups of friends about potentially illegal behavior does NOT create a risk of "Public inconvenience," for the crime of 1st Degree Disorderly Conduct. The COA also helpfully noted "Katy testified, and everybody who might appear on MySpace or Facebook knows, that "lol" is an abbreviation of "laughing out loud."
Congrats to trial attorney Noah Horst & appellate attorney Erik Blumenthal for the win!
