The publisher who was sued for not registering his book as a trading advisor has found what appears to be Supreme Court precedent allowing federal officials who violate their oath of office to be prosecuted for perjury in local district court. As best can be determined at this moment, the case has not been overturned but is in the process of being researched. If this precedent holds, it has the potential to alter the relationship between the people and the public servant. Further, there is no clearer established law upon which the federal officials who tried to compel registration might be held accountable for their perjury than the First Amendment, for such infingements are clearly stated and have been repeatedly upheld by the Supreme Court. This could be the one that turns it all around. The issues and controversy are at www.busprod.com/censorship.
