Bad news in an important Institute for Justice-launched lawsuit defending the right of free speech on the Internet about matters of diet and nutrition.

The case was dismissed by a federal court late last week.

Why? Because he passed out business cards with his URL at a talk which advocated the diet that previously kept Cooksey dependent upon drugs—a talk given someone who had been licensed by the state.
