Schlam Stone & Dolan Argues Major First Amendment Case

Schlam Stone & Dolan partners Richard Dolan, Harvey Stone and Elizabeth Wolstein, together with counsel Ronald Russo, are representing controversial radio host and blogger Harold “Hal” Turner as he appeals his 2010 conviction for threatening three Chicago-area federal judges when he criticized, in a commentary on his website, the Court’s decision upholding two local gun ordinances. At oral argument on May 15, 2012, Mr. Dolan urged the Second Circuit to overturn Mr. Turner’s conviction, arguing that his comments communicated no threat of imminent harm and were therefore protected by the First Amendment.
