Amicus Brief : Volokh v James

New York

When New York passed a law compelling social media companies to create and publish a “hateful conduct” statement, YAF joined an amicus brief to argue this violates the First Amendment. Any law based on “hateful conduct” is suspect given the lack of legal definition of the term and the politically charge rhetoric surrounding it. Additionally, the government must have a very good reason for compelling speech, and no such reason exists here.

Date commenced: September 26, 2023

Court: United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

Partner: Life Legal Defense Foundation

Brief: Eugene Volokh, Locals Technology Inc v Letitia, in her official capacity as Attorney General of NY
