As so perfectly spoken by Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis in defense of free speech rights many years ago, “Those who won our independence by revolution were not cowards. They did not fear political change. They did not exalt order at the cost of liberty. If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence.”  Our success in upholding free speech rights includes:

  • Successfully represented Prison Legal News in suits against various jails alleging censorship of PLN in violation of the First Amendment; cases resulted in favorable settlements
  • Defeated efforts to impose gag order in high-profile medical malpractice and false advertising case against doctor and hospital
  • Represented Professor Steven Salaita in First Amendment case against the University of Illinois in connection with Salaita’s tweets regarding Israeli-Palestinian conflict, resulting in a favorable settlement
