A California man facing more than a decade in prison for writing with chalk on public sidewalks has been told he’s barred from discussing the details of his controversial case outside of court.

Judge Howard Shore issued a gag-order in a San Diego, California courtroom this week against Jeff Olson, a 40-year-old activist that used washable children’s chalk to scribble anti-bank slogans in public space last year.

According to the San Diego Reader, the gag-order issued on Friday also applies to witnesses, members of the jury and potentially others, a measure that Truth-Out editor Mark Karlin said is “unprecedented” for a misdemeanor trial.

Olson has been charged with 13 misdemeanor counts of vandalism for chalking slogans such as “No Thanks, Big Banks” and “Shame on Bank of America” on the sidewalks outside of branches in the San Diego area throughout 2012. Now as the criminal trial against him wages on in Southern California, the defendant and anyone remotely involved in the case is reportedly muzzled by a ban that could bring media coverage of the case to a grinding halt.

    They are trying to make an example out of someone, and for that they need “secrecy”. We thought kangaroo courts were for fraudclosures, but Banks can use them for other purposes.

    Blame it on Railroading Economics where the courts and our regulators exist to protect corporations. The judge ought to ashamed. How did our country’s laws become so distorted?
