Baltimore Sun Co. v. Ehrlich et al., District Court for the Northern District of Maryland, Judge William D. Quarles Jr., February 14, 2005 [dismissing a lawsuit brought by the Baltimore Sun challenging an order from Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. grounds which barred thousands of state employees from contact with two Sun journalists on First Amendment grounds]. Excerpt:
Because, as discussed above, the Sun seeks the declaration of a constitutional right that neither the Supreme Court nor the Fourth Circuit has recognized—and, in fact, seeks more access than that accorded a private citizen--the Governor's motion to dismiss will be granted.
