A U.S. computer security expert is suing the Japanese government for violation of his freedom of speech, alleging that officals censored him at a recent computer security conference. The lawsuit is the first of its kind in Japan, according to his lawyer.

A law firm representing Ejovi Nuwere, chief technology officer of SecurityLab Technologies Inc. in Boston, filed a petition at the Tokyo District Court against the Japanese government for punitive damages of $290,406 for violation of Nuwere's rights under Article 21 of the Japanese Constitution, according to Nuwere's attorney Tsutomu Shimizu.
