Default New York Judge Upholds Baptist Teaching - 11-22-2019, 10:36 AM

In this era of triggered snowflakes, social justice warriors, virtue signaling, and safe spaces, it's comforting to know that the Holy Spirit and the Iron Fist of Jesus are ensuring that this is still a Christian nation.

Our constant battle with Satan and the cathylicks is legendary, and it's unusual to see the LIEberal state of New York uphold the Bible (KJV1611) when it comes to attempts to persecute True Christians™.

Rest assured that when you mail Chick Tracts to your loved ones and they get offended, just cite this case number and save yourself some money by not having to hire a joo lawyer.

N.Y. Prosecution and Lawsuit Over Sending Baptist Anti-Catholic Leaflet + E-Mail
Criminal charges were eventually dropped, and the civil lawsuit has just been thrown out.
Eugene Volokh - The Volokh Conspiracy - 11.21.2019 8:03 AM

From Trombetta v. Kruse, 2019 WL 6140052, decided Tuesday by New York state Judge Sabrina B. Kraus:

Plaintiff and defendant live in the same building. Before October 2015, they were only casually acquainted. Plaintiff considered them to be acquaintances, defendant appears to have considered them to be friends. Plaintiff is an artist who specializes in painting outdoors. Defendant is a paralegal at Kaye Scholer.

(Defendant) anonymously mailed a religious pamphlet to plaintiff entitled "Last Rites" … through the mail room at Kaye Scholer. The envelope was addressed by hand in blue ink, the return address was marked KS (with Kaye Scholer's address). The pamphlet, also referred to as a tract, shows a cartoon depiction of a catholic who is sent into the "lake of fire" to "burn in hell" for practicing as a catholic, instead of following the version of Christianity promoted by the pamphlet which is evangelical Baptist. The tract urges the reader to reject Catholicism, or be barred from heaven.

The tract, which is published by Chick Publications, is authored by Jack Chick. The company asserts that it has sold over 150 million copies in over 100 languages, and that ten percent of the publications are aimed against other religions including Mormonism, Islam, Catholicism, and Buddhism.

Plaintiff testified that she became very fearful when she received the tract. Plaintiff testified that the date the envelope was postmarked which was October 15, 2015, was significant to her, because she was on the Staten Island Ferry when it crashed on October 15, 2003. Plaintiff suffered extensive injuries as a result of the crash, and was awarded $813,000 in a lawsuit brought to compensate her for her injuries.

Plaintiff testified that she was frightened by the tract, in part because of violent incidents that took place around the world in 2015.

Plaintiff eventually discovered that Defendant had mailed her the pamphlet.

Defendant testified that she mailed up to 50 pamphlets from the offices of Kaye Scholer on that date, including to her own family members.

The parties engaged in email correspondence about the tract in January 2016.

In the emails, defendant apologized for having offended plaintiff. However on January 19, 2016, defendant wrote plaintiff an email that included the following statements:

"We are all going to die (you, me and every member of my family). Where we spend eternity will be determined by a decision we make here on earth—not by how good a person we think we are, or by how many good things we have done or if we believe that we have evolved or ascended to a higher spiritual level….

"Do you recognize yourself as a sinner and understand that there is nothing that you can do to save yourself? ….

"If you understand and believe these things and if you recognize yourself as a sinner in need of a savior, then if you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ thou shalt be saved.

"I have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my savior and I know that when I die I will go to heaven. My family does not believe and, if any of them were to die tomorrow, they would not go to heaven but to hell. I sent them tracts because I do not want them to go to hell. I want them to go to heaven. It is what I want for you too."

Plaintiff turned over the tract and the emails to the police, and on January 27, 2016, defendant was arrested and charged with aggravated harassment in the second degree pursuant to PL 240.30(1)(a). A temporary order of protection was issued by Criminal Court (Watters, J) on March 15, 2016 in favor of plaintiff. The temporary order of protection had an expiration date of September 14, 2016. On May 2, 2016, the criminal court action was dismissed based on the assistant district attorney's representation that the People could not prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt, and the temporary order of protection was extinguished.

During this period, plaintiff also experienced interference with her emails and phone. Plaintiff believed that defendant was the cause of these disturbances.

Plaintiff Failed to Establish Any Cause of Action or Prove Any Damages

Under New York law, there is no civil cause of action for harassment of the type alleged by plaintiff.

The tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress has four elements: (i) extreme and outrageous conduct; (ii) intent to cause, or disregard of a substantial probability of causing, severe emotional distress; (iii) a causal connection between the conduct and injury; and (iv) severe emotional distress. Liability is only established where the conduct is so outrageous in character, and extreme in degree, as to exceed all bounds of decency, and be utterly intolerable in a civilized community.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the courts of this State from evaluating the religious beliefs of a church or individual.

While the court understands why the plaintiff found the tract and email disturbing, the court does not find that the conduct rose to the level of intentional infliction of emotional distress.

In regards to any alleged claim for personal injury, plaintiff failed to offer any competent medical expert to establish that she was emotionally, physically or psychologically injured as a result of defendant's conduct….

Defendant Failed to Establish a Claim for Malicious Prosecution

The elements of a claim for malicious prosecution are (1) the commencement or continuation of a criminal proceeding by the defendant against the plaintiff; (2) the termination of the proceeding in favor of the plaintiff; (3) the absence of probable cause for the criminal proceeding; and (4) actual malice.

It is well settled that a civilian who makes a complaint to the police or furnishes information to law enforcement authorities, who are then free to exercise their own judgment as to whether an arrest should be made and criminal charges filed, will not be held liable for false arrest or malicious prosecution.

brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

Some might say it's cruel to point and laugh at nutters - but really, did she not see that the chance of this happening is a perfectly modest one in 365?


Revelation 21:8

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
