Government Was ‘Going After Lawful Speech,’ Which First Amendment Explicitly Forbids: NCLA President

March 18, 2024

The Supreme Court on Monday heard arguments in what is being called the “most consequential” First Amendment case in America’s history. The attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana, and five individuals, claim that federal officials violated their First Amendment rights by coercing social media companies to censor their viewpoints in their social media posts that countered the message of the Biden Administration on COVID-19.

NTD spoke with Mark Chenoweth, who is the president and chief legal officer of the New Civil Liberties Alliance and represents four of the five individual respondents, including two respected epidemiologists.
