Acquitted blogger sues Conn. officials for $50M
Hal Turner’s big claim to fame is being a probable frequent caller to the Sean Hannity Radio show, and a news source for hate group leader, Pamela Geller.
Harold “Hal” Turner of North Bergen, N.J., filed the lawsuit in federal court in Newark, N.J., on Nov. 21 claiming he was falsely arrested, wrongfully imprisoned and maliciously prosecuted. A jury acquitted him last year.
Turner was arrested after a June 2009 blog posting suggesting Connecticut officials “obey the Constitution or die” and urging readers to “take up arms.”
