Elonis v. United States (USA)


Anthony Elonis

Anthony Elonis is a man who threatened numerous people, including his ex-wife, on social media, including Facebook. Elonis was charged and convicted under federal law with transmitting in interstate commerce a communication containing a threat to injure the person of another. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed his conviction.  He is now appealing his conviction to the United States Supreme Court, claiming that he didn’t intend to hurt anyone and that the federal law violates his constitutional rights.

Transgender activists regularly use social media to threaten to rape and kill Women who disagree with their ideology.  We hope they take note of this litigation.
