Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories In February 2011, Palmer found a note in ungrammatical English on his computer keyboard that read, according to the judgment: “Jack: Just leave your not wanted here hope your journey brings you death stupid American.”Palmer said that as a result of the threats and languishing without work, he takes antidepressants and sometimes carries a concealed gun.“(A)n argument could be made that such threats against whistleblowers, in particular, should be illegal,” Thomson wrote. “The issue before the court, however, is not whether Alabama should make these alleged wrongs actionable, but whether they are, in fact, illegal under state law. This court cannot rewrite state law.”The judge also ruled that Palmer must bear the costs of the litigation.
