US District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer has refused to step between Kevin Mitnick and his probation officer, who has denied the legendary phreaker's request to take a job writing a column for "Contentville," an e-zine scheduled for rollout next month. Mitnick is forbidden to use mobile phones or computers, or work in a computing-related field as a condition of his release. His probation officer, Larry Hawley, nixed the job even though Mitnick says he would willingly write his columns on a typewriter, assuming he can borrow one from a museum. According to court documents filed by Mitnick's lawyer, Officer Hawley appears willing to re-visit the job offer, but said he would "appreciate the filing of an application in order to clarify the court's intentions."
