Will SCOTUS Topple the Government's Censorship Industrial Complex?

March 19, 2024

In this Lunch and Law series, we discuss Murthy v. Missouri, NCLA’s most recent Supreme Court case, about the government’s use of social media companies to execute a massive censorship regime. Using a system of coercion and influence, several agencies in the executive branch—including the White House, the CDC, the Surgeon General’s Office, the FBI, CISA, and more—violated the First Amendment rights of thousands of Americans, including NCLA’s clients, for the so-called crime of making true statements that were inconvenient to the government’s narrative.

This event took place 24 hours after oral argument before the Supreme Court and the discussion was led by NCLA President Mark Chenoweth. Joining him on the panel is NCLA client Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, Fellow and Director, Bioethics and American Democracy Program, Ethics and Public Policy Center as well as NCLA Litigation Counsel Jenin Younes, who fought on behalf of our clients to push this case all the way to the Supreme Court.

Garland v. Cargill: Will SCOTUS Stop Agencies from Legislating?

February 29, 2024

In this Lunch and Law series, we discuss the so-called “Bumpstock Ban” and the historic Supreme Court case, Garland v. Cargill, that will decide whether the ATF had the power to enact legislation when Congress had considered such legislation and chosen not to do so.

The panel includes Rich Samp, Senior Litigation Counsel, and lead NCLA attorney on the case, as well as Jonathan Mitchell, an accomplished constitutional appellate litigator who manned the podium at oral argument, and our client Michael Cargill.

Can Relentless & Loper Bright Kill Unconstitutional Chevron Deference?

January 24, 2024

Chevron Deference purports to require Article III judges to violate their oath of impartiality by yielding to an administrative agency’s interpretation of the law. Basically, the judge is forced to rule for the government, even if that judge thinks their interpretation of the law is wrong. And that’s exactly what happened in the Relentless and Loper Bright cases. But NCLA and its allies have challenged this unconstitutional thumb on the scales of justice in favor of the government, and the Supreme Court is set to resolve the issue this term.

This event took place just days after oral argument before the Supreme Court. What happened? How did it go? Will SCOTUS finally kill Chevron Deference completely, or only limit its effect?

Join our panel of expert appellate litigators who argued these cases in court to find out.

Can We Hold the SEC Accountable for Its Shenanigans?

December 6, 2023

NCLA leads the fight against the Star Chamber that is the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), with our most recent Supreme Court victory in Cochran v. SEC being the crown jewel of our resistance. But what if we told you the SEC is simply ignoring Supreme Court rulings and playing games with prosecutions in order to prevent Article III courts from reviewing their shenanigans? What if we told you they got caught breaking the law and, rather than face the consequences in court, they decided to dismiss 42 cases so that neither judge nor jury would ever be able to hold them accountable.

Our panel of expert appellate litigators discuss Cochran v. SEC, SEC v. Jarkesy, and other recent cases and events that lay bare the perfidy of the SEC.

The Censorship-Industrial Complex Silences the Vaccine-Injured

October 18, 2023

NCLA leads the charge against the massive censorship industrial complex that found the federal government coercing social media companies into trampling the First Amendment rights of anyone whose speech it felt was inconvenient. First, in the case of Missouri v. Biden, and now in Dressen v. Flaherty, the New Civil Liberties Alliance has uncovered a deluge of evidence that the government has been engaged in unconstitutional censorship of Americans who just want to be able to tell the truth.

For NCLA clients Brianne Dressen and Nikki Holland, that truth is a difficult one about vaccine injuries. NCLA President Mark Chenoweth moderates a discussion with NCLA Litigation Counsel Casey Norman and these brave Americans who were not allowed to speak freely about the vaccine injuries suffered by them and their loved ones.
