Good post on a California law from Eugene Volokh. Seems you can read the sex offender Web site, but don’t try to tell anyone what you read.

As Volokh points out:

Seems like a pretty clear First Amendment violation, especially given Florida Star v. B.J.F. If it’s unconstitutional to bar speakers from revealing the names of rape victims when those names were accidentally released by government officials into the public record, I’d think that it would be unconstitutional to bar speakers from revealing the names of rapists when those names were deliberately placed by government officials into the public record.
