A Matter Of Opinion

Chism: ‘Never rush to judgment’

Todd Chism has been cleared of charges of purchasing child pornography, but his supporters say his reputation has been irrevocably damaged by the WSP and the media. Now he's mulling whether to file a lawsuit against the WSP, and he has support in doing that as well. But both he and his lawyer, Carl Oreskovich (of Clifford Helm and Carole DeLeon trial fame), have cautioned the public not to rush to judgment, either in believing criminal charges or that Chism will file a lawsuit. They've got to make sure they've got a legal case first.

Do you think Chism's name is tarnished forever?
