Supreme Court Justices Rule on Facebook Threats

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a Pennsylvania man who posted several violent messages on Facebook and was convicted under a federal threat statute. The Court held that the standard used to convict him was too low.
The Court said that it wasn't enough to convict him based solely on how a reasonable person would regard his communcations as a threat. The Court left open what standard should be used.
