Judge Warns Against Further Retaliation

An American Civil Liberties Union attorney says a federal judge in Kansas has canceled a hearing scheduled Friday in the group's lawsuit challenging the state's ban on gay marriage.
A federal judge has warned a Canadian man convicted of identity theft against filing any more legal actions against people who testified against him in the criminal case.
U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten stopped short Wednesday of issuing the formal injunction sought by prosecutors against 58-year-old Leslie Camick, but noted the denial was provisional for now.
A federal jury in Wichita convicted Camick last month of moving from Canada to the U.S. using the identity of his dead infant brother. He lived in Winfield under the false name and worked as a telecommunication field engineer.
Camick was also convicted of witness retaliation, stemming from a civil rights lawsuit he filed against an ex-girlfriend, her company and law enforcement personnel after his indictment for identity theft.
