Jailed Alabama Blogger's Case Tests First Amendment

A former sports reporter and a former employee in a university’s publications department, Roger Shuler, 57, was arrested in late October on a contempt charge in connection with a defamation lawsuit filed by the son of a former governor. Mr. Shuler, who has hounded figures of Alabama's legal and political establishment on his blog, is sitting in jail indefinitely, and now on the list of imprisoned journalists worldwide kept by the Committee to Protect Journalists.
