If you are referring to United States v. Baker, the case brought against a University of Michigan undergraduate in 1995, then no--unfortunately, we haven't written any articles about that.

However, there is some information available online about the Baker case. Here are some links you might find interesting:

  • Wikipedia has an article on the topic. (However, like many articles on Wikipedia, this one may be biased or contain incorrect information; this one in particular has been marked as needing "additional citations for verification".)

  • The full text of the court's first decision on June 21, 1995, in which the charges against Baker were dismissed, is available via the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

  • The full text regarding the government's eventual appeal on August 16, 1996 is also available.

  • In 1995, the Trincoll Journal published an article about the event called The Jake Baker Scandal: A Perversion of Logic, which can be accessed here.

  • The transcript of a contemporaneous debate concerning the case is also available online via the University of Michigan website.
