US Supreme Court takes up critical free speech case

ADF official comment
Published On: 10/18/2017
The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Brett Harvey regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus, a lawsuit partially funded by Alliance Defending Freedom that challenges the constitutionality of an Ohio statute that restricts free speech:


“Americans deserve to know and speak the truth about their elected officials. The Ohio law unconstitutionally places a muzzle on citizens in complete contrast to the First Amendment’s free speech protections. Alliance Defending Freedom has been privileged to provide support for Susan B. Anthony List’s important case. We now trust that the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold the constitutionally protected freedom of all Americans to engage freely in public dialogue about our elected officials and their positions.”

Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorneys David R. Langdon and Robert A. Destro are co-counsel representing Susan B. Anthony List in the case.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
