http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46670 Judge Weinberg DEFENDANT CHARGED, by information, with 27 counts of second-degree aggravated harassment, as well as third-degree stalking and second-degree harassment, sought the information’s dismissal as facially insufficient. The court denied dismissal of the information. It ruled that despite the lack of an allegation of a threat of immediate and real danger, the factual allegations concerning telephone calls and letters by defendant to the complainant established that defendant, with the required intent, engaged in a course of conduct that alarmed or annoyed the complainant, had no legitimate purpose and was likely to cause the complainant to reasonably fear serious physical injury.

Dietz, on which defendant relied, rejected his contention that the information against him violated his constitutional free-speech rights.
