Counterman v. Colorado

The thousands of unstable messages sent to me were life threatening and life altering. I was terrified that I was being followed and could be hurt at any moment; I had no choice but to step back from my dream, a music career that I had worked very hard to build. As the Supreme Court weighs this issue, I hope it will consider how dangerous stalking is for victims and their families all over this country. The threat was very real and caused me significant and enduring harm. I am grateful that when I reported these alarming messages, they were taken seriously, and many folks in law enforcement and the criminal justice system did everything they could to protect me. If you are afraid – please – trust yourself, and reach out for help.
