Abu-Jamal filed a lawsuit Monday, saying the law violates the First Amendment. The law allows both prosecutors and victims of crime or their survivors to sue inmates for conduct that continues to create anguish.
While the law does not mention Abu-Jamal, it was introduced and passed immediately after he gave a videotaped commencement speech to a group of students at Goddard College in Vermont. Maureen Faulkner, widow of Officer Daniel Faulkner, pushed the legislature to pass the law and was present when Gov. Tom Corbett signed it at the place where her husband was gunned down in December 1981.
