Ed Brayton not only writes the widely read blog Dispatches from the Culture Wars but is also the person who manages the business end of the Freethought Blogs site and keeps the whole thing running smoothly.
He is now being sued by a lawyer from Texas whom he had criticized. It is a lawsuit that the lawyer will likely lose but that does not mean that Ed does not have to hire a lawyer in Texas to fight the case, and this all adds up to expenses at the front end.
In order to meet this need, he has started a fund to raise money for his legal expenses.
Ed does extremely valuable work on many areas of the social justice front and I encourage everyone who can to chip in. We should not let people be silenced because of the fear of legal expenses to fight lawsuits.
