NEW JERSEY: COURT CURBS NEW JERSEY BID TO PUT MEGAN’S LAW INFO ON ‘NET
A federal judge has ruled that New Jersey will be allowed to list only a sex offender's name, without any address or hometown, when it begins posting Megan's Law information on the Internet in January. The ruling that was issued and made public crimps a constitutional amendment
overwhelmingly approved by voters last year. The amendment was aimed at getting around restrictions placed by the courts on Megan's Law, named for Megan Kanka, the murdered New Jersey girl whose case inspired similar laws across the nation. Chuck Davis, spokesman for the attorney general said that the US District Court Judge Joseph E. Irenas basically allowed it to go forward, but said you had to exclude certain information from it, but he excluded a lot of information.
