Harassment Laws That Violate the First Amendment Should be Stricken (Arizona and Connecticut)

The harassment laws of Arizona and Connecticut criminalize "annoying" conduct and these laws should be stricken. The U.S. Supreme Court has already stricken criminal law that contains the vague and over-broad criteria of "annoy[ing}" as an unconstitutionally subjective element of a crime. Annoying is the exact language used in these statutes.

I have mounted 1st amendment attacks upon the harassment laws of Arizona and Connecticut in federal Court in Arizona, Florida, the United States 9th and 11th Circuit Courts of Appeals which all dodged an analysis of these statutes.
