Shasta County Superior Court Commissioner Gary Gibson has rejected a request from a reporter at the Record Searchlight in Redding seeking a restraining order against a former friend turned blogging nemesis.

Beth Doolittle-Norby's blog, "No Phat Pink Chicks," pokes fun at journalist Christy Lochrie's reporting, looks and personality, according to an AP report , which is why Lochrie wanted it to be taken down.

The court commissioner said that Doolittle-Norby's blog was written at roughly a sixth-grade level but was legal nevertheless.

He told Lochrie, "I think we can't avoid that there's a big, fat First Amendment staring you in the face," he told her.

Nonetheless, Doolittle-Norby has taken her blog underground. When you try to visit www.nophatpinkchicks.blogspot.com , you get this message: nophatpinkchicks.jpg

Lochrie's blog is still up and running but she must have been distracted by the trial: Her last blog entry was January, 25.
