Remember the Gentle Wind Project (GWP) – the makers of the magic alien-designed plastic cards you hold in your hand to solve all life’s problems? Two former GWP members, Jim Bergin and Judy Garvey, had set up the Winds of Changes website to expose GWP’s racket. Ironically, the GWP brought a racketeering federal lawsuit against Bergin and Garvey, in an attempt to gag them. Bergin and Garvey filed a Motion for Summary Dismissal.
Bergin and Garvey have just won their Motion for Summary Judgment – all charges have been dismissed (.pdf file). Clearly the judge saw through the ridiculous racketeering charges.
A victory for free speech on the web, as well as a victory for the good guys against the woos. Clearly those magic pieces of plastic have their limits.
