Per Ken White at Popehat (http://www.popehat.com/2012/12/10/update-on-defense-of-patterico/):

"In early October I announced that I would be joining Ron Coleman in a pro bono defense of Patrick Frey of Patterico's Pontifications and his wife Christi Frey in response to a federal lawsuit filed by Nadia Naffe here in the Central District of California.

"Today I write to offer pleadings for anyone interested in the case, and a pleasing update regarding its status. As long as litigation continues, I'll refrain for both prudential and stylistic reasons from arguing our case here, other than to say we continue to believe the case is an abusive and meritless attempt to retaliate against protected speech. As a result, I won't be explaining the motions or legal theories, or helping you decipher legalese. You're on your own. Sorry."
