Harvard student finds lawyer to defend Apple suit | CNET News.com: So this is a promising sign that Nick dePlume has a lawyer. Apple's suit against a blogger/journalist is a clear attempt to stifle reporting and protect their trade secrets. ThinkSecret surely has a first amendment right to publish news, regardless of whether the source may be violating an employment agreement. I agree with commentators who think Apple would never have sued say the Mercury News, if they had run with the story. In any case, the rumors were true, and publishing the truth can never be an actionable sin, or can it?
