    Judge orders Southern Poverty Law Center to conceal home address in court papers

    Published: 2 days ago

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has been ordered by a federal court judge to conceal in case filings the home address of Eugene Delgaudio, an opponent in a legal case, after court documents revealed the man suspected of shooting one person at the Family Research Council headquarters also had been seen at Delgaudio’s office.
    The recent ruling comes from Kathleen M. Tafaya, a U.S. magistrate in a Colorado lawsuit over the use of an image of a homosexual couple in a campaign mailing last year.

    Delgaudio is president of Public Advocate of the United States, a nonprofit organization that works in court cases, in news conferences and in campaigns on behalf of conservative values and issues.
    The judge’s order instructed SPLC to not publicize his home address because it could subject him to “politically motivated harassment, or even violence.”
    Public Advocate, based in Falls Church, Va., was sued in Colorado by SPLC attorneys representing two homosexuals over Public Advocate’s mailings opposing state lawmakers who support homosexual marriage in Colorado.
    As part of the litigation, Delgaudio stated, “SPLC attorneys recklessly posted the home address of Public Advocate’s president, Eugene Delgaudio, in a pleading that was available to the public as part of the record of the case.”
    He explained that SPLC attorneys refused to remove the home address, so Public Advocate went to court for the order, which was granted recently by the judge.
    Public Advocate has argued SPLC previously had labeled FRC an “anti-gay hate group” because of its opposition to homosexual marriage. Its brief also pointed out the potential danger, since FRC was labeled the same by SPLC, and its offices in Washington subsequently were attacked by “a homosexual activist” who shot and wounded a security officer.
    The activist later was indicted for committing domestic terrorism.
    But Public Advocate explained that the FBI warned its officials that the “shooter possessed a list of pro-family organizations he had obtained from the Internet, including FRC and Public Advocate.”
    According to a report from Public Advocate, “Further, the FRC shooting had been seen at the Public Advocate’s office.”
    It was FRC President Tony Perkins who pinpointed what he believed to be a contributing factor in the attack.
    He said while the shooter “was responsible” for the shooting, I believe that he was given a license by a group such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, who … labeled us a hate group.”
    Delgaudio agreed.
    “Although I am still concerned, as the president of an organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled an ‘anti-gay hate group,’ that my family and I are at risk from violence by certain deranged people who are inspired to such acts against persons that the SPLC is targeting, I am relieved that the court ordered that SPLC remove my home address from their filing in the Colorado litigation,” he said.
    Delgaudio said SPLC lawyers had Public Advocate’s office address and phone number, and had no reason to reveal his home address.
    “Yet, I was not surprised, as such practices are consistent with SPLC’s goal of intimidation of pro-family activists. SPLC attaches odious labels to persons or organizations with which they disagree, regardless of the effect such dangerous rhetoric may have on certain unbalanced people – like the domestic terrorist who attacked the FRC. I believe that such SPLC practices, at the very least, constitute reckless endangerment of pro-family leaders. If there is a category of hate-inciting groups, SPLC would top the list.”
    The court order also said the home addresses of the plaintiffs in the dispute over the image also should be protected.
    Delgaudio told WND that the larger case, over the issue of the campaign mailers, continues, and that his defense is based on the First Amendment as well as fair use practices.
    The case was brought by Brian Edwards and Tom Privitere, who are kissing in an image used on a campaign mailing that opposed a state senator in Colorado that the Public Advocate said supported homosexual unions.
    The image had been posted on a blog run by Edwards.
    The motion filed on behalf of Public Advocate said the plaintiffs in the case had been citing the organization’s business offices, but “abruptly – and inconsistent with plaintiffs’ counsel’s effort to protect plaintiff’s privacy and with their practice of referring to Public Advocate’s business address … plaintiffs’ counsel unnecessarily published the home address of Public Advocate’s president, Eugene Delgaudio, on a certificate of service.”
    The motion noted Delgaudio’s home was not even in the same Virginia county as the business office.
    The motion said SPLC knew that “could expose his family to great personal danger.”
    The attack on the FRC was carried out, allegedly, by Floyd Lee Corkins II, who went into the FRC building, told the security guard, “I don’t like your politics,” and opened fire.
    Corkins was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches purchased at a store where Delgaudio had protested on behalf of the chain owner’s statements in support of biblical marriage, the motion said.
    “That shooting spree is relevant to Public Advocate’ present motion because both Public Advocate and the Family Research Council have been labeled as ‘hate groups’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Both pro-marriage groups can be found on the SPLC’s Hate Map,” the motion said.

    PS I just got this email recently I bring some of their information over here thought I would share the email

    Dear xxxxx,

    Tears ran down my face when I heard the news...

    My family would be safe.

    My friend, as I write you, I cannot fully restrain my emotion from bleeding through.

    The court has ruled that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) must immediately cease broadcasting my family’s home address to their vast network of radical agents.

    I have not stopped thanking God for this victory for my family and Public Advocate.

    You see, SPLC lawyers went out of their way to include my private home address in the recent lawsuit they filed against your Public Advocate.

    I was shocked when I first heard the news.

    Every single violent homosexual agent in the country would know where to find my family.

    They have painted a giant target on my wife and children.

    To prove to the court how dangerous the Homosexual Lobby could be, I was forced to reveal confidential FBI information:

    A violent gunman came looking for me and my staff at Public Advocate’s office last year.

    By the grace of the Lord he failed to find me that day.

    And by the bravery of one pro-Family security guard, he failed to kill anyone at his next target later that day.

    When the FBI later warned me that Public Advocate had been on the shooter’s list, I thanked God that my family and staffers were spared.

    It is widely believed that the homicidal gunman was inspired to both his violent action and his targets by the SPLC’s reckless labeling of the pro-Family Movement as “hate groups.”

    You cannot imagine the horror when the SPLC turned their gun sights on my family just a few months later.

    I still believe Public Advocate will completely defeat the SPLC’s “legal” attempt to silence our pro-Family message.

    But I cannot express the joy I felt when we defeated this horrendous attack.

    I want to give you my heart-felt gratitude for standing with me, my family and Public Advocate in this dangerous battle.

    None of this would be possible without you.

    Of course, there is still so much more to do.

    This victory has also brought our court battle to the attention of major conservative news sources. has just published a report of our struggle and the despicable tactics of the SPLC.

    I hope you can click here and take a few minutes to read even more about our victory.

    For the Family,

    Eugene Delgaudio
    President, Public Advocate of the United States
