of Amicus Curiae in support of Appellee Linda Ellis (“Ellis”). Mr. McCormack is

Mr. McCormack was discussed during the February 28, 2013 trial court hearing.

In addition to briefing why the lower court’s decision should be upheld

under state and federal law, Mr. McCormack argues for a bright line rule: that

Internet harassment is illegal, regardless of physical proximity, to help reduce this
