Short Circuit 217 | Hunting for Free Speech Truffles

It’s a First Amendment fiesta at Short Circuit this week! Tori Clark explains how in the Eighth Circuit it’s hard to sue the government to protect your right to free speech when the law is privately enforced. And we’re not talking about Texas here, but people not acting so nice in Minnesota. Further down the trail, things went a little berserk in Oregon, and a pro se legislator won himself another day in court in the Ninth Circuit. Sam Gedge has hunted through the briefs.

If you’re in Michigan come to our State Forum on Judicial Engagement and the Michigan Constitution! Friday, May 20, 2022 at noon. There’s also a free lunch. RSVP here.
