One More Indictment For Gordon Lee

In the increasingly weird court case that is the State of Georgia versus comic book retailer Gordon Lee, last night the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund announced that a new indictment was procured from a special grand jury session, which will replace accusations against which the CBLDF aggressively filed motions earlier this month. That means Lee is to be arraigned yet again on July 7, and then the lawyers will likely re-file motions, perhaps adding some based on these latest permutations. According to their statements through the CBLDF, Lee's legal team believes that due to the legal issues involved this is a direct response to their recent Motion to Quash.

Lee faces two misdemeanor counts of distributing Harmful to Minor materials stemming from an October 2004 incident where during a civic Halloween promotion a pair of children were mistakenly given a free comic book featuring incidental male nudity.
