In this photo taken Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, Shasta County Deputy Sheriff Christine Gerring, left, removes the restraints from a prisoner after transporting convicted felons from the Shasta County Jail to the Deuel Vocational Institute near Tracy, Calif. California counties are thwarting the state's efforts to comply with a federal court order to reduce it's inmate population by sending state prisons far more convicts than anticipated including a record number of second-strikers. The state is trying to comply with a landmark restructuring of its criminal justice system through a nearly 3-year-old law pushed by Gov. Jerry Brown that keeps lower-level felons in county jails while reserving scarce state prison cells for serious, violent and sexual offenders.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)

FILE - This Sept. 20, 2010 file photo shows musician Courtney Love in New York. Love hadn’t been born and tweeting was reserved for birds when The New York Times won a landmark libel case at the Supreme Court in 1964. But when a California jury decided recently that Love shouldn’t have to pay $8 million for a troublesome tweet about her former lawyer, she became just the latest person to lean on New York Times v. Sullivan, a case decided 50 years ago Sunday, and the cases that followed and expanded it. (AP Photo/Evan Agostini, File)
