Defendant: Mrs. Palmer, how much fear did these emails inspire in you. These contacts inspire in you.
Judge: Please answer the question, ma’am. What exactly did those emails have on you.
Petitioner: They began the minute I saw his name pop up. Instant tremors, cold sweat, umm, thinking Oh my GOD, he’s contacting me AGAIN. What on earth did he think that he has the right to do this.
Judge: Okay. Next question?
Defendant: Mrs. Palmer, do you see my name pop up on your internet screen every day?
Petitioner: Not as personal contact, No.
Defendant: Mrs. Palmer, do you believe that writing what I consider a hate blog directed at a person, a private citizen, a person whose life is of no concern to you, as being something that the person has no right to respond to?
Petitioner: I do not believe you have the right to personal contact, especially when *I* have not made personal contact.
Defendant: Mrs. Palmer, your blog has a comment section. I have tried contacting you through the comments
Judge: Was there a question here, sir?
Defendant: There’s going to be at the end. How is contacting you in your comments section any different than contacting you in any other way where you refuse to answer a simple question.
Petitioner: It is personal contact and I have requested before that you not contact myself or my family members personally. It is my blog. You are not allowed to comment on it due to circumstances where you were abusive to my other posters and where you attempted to post personal information…
Defendant: Entering facts not in evidence.
Judge: Is there another question, sir?
Defendant: Ah, um, ah, your honor, please give me a moment, I’ve, I don’t want to use this as a crutch, but I’m a little bit slow in the thinking department after almost 20 years of Parkinson’s Disease, Ahhh, which is a topic of discussion on Mrs. Palmers blog, whether or not I actually have it.
