[Ed. – This is about a lawsuit filed by the gun rights group, which sponsors blueprint sharing.]
The New Jersey attorney general’s office said on Tuesday that it did not send the takedown notice a gun-rights website recently received that has become the subject of a federal civil rights lawsuit.
State attorney general Gurbir Grewal wrote a letter to Judge Anne E. Thompson of the U.S. District Court for New Jersey that said the takedown notice sent to CodeIsFreeSpeech.com’s webhost directing them to wipe the site from the internet was not sent by his office or anyone in the state government. That notice is the center of a federal lawsuit brought against New Jersey by the gun-rights groups behind the gun-blueprint-sharing website. Grewal said the notice was sent by somebody trying to impersonate his office. ,,,
Detective Kevin Madore of the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice … said he determined, with the help of the hosting service CloudFlare, that the takedown notice was sent from abroad.
“I learned that the I.P. address resides in the Slovak Republic,” Madore wrote in his affidavit.
