Missouri v. Biden — Amicus Brief

Jeremiah Morgan Constitutional Law, U. S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit

Today, our firm filed an amicus brief in support of a challenge led by the states of Missouri and Louisiana. The challengers sought and received a preliminary injunction against certain members of the Biden Administration, prohibiting them from continuing to pressure social media companies to censor speech that they oppose. Our brief argued that the federal government has an improper view of its own role and powers as well as misstated the scope of the district court’s injunction. We also laid out a sample of the federal government’s history of misinformation, including its role in suppressing news about Biden family corruption in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election. Finally, we addressed how the government has a history of targeting independent journalists who speak truth which is contrary to the government’s chosen narrative, and has overlooked human rights abuses that are committed against those journalists, with the most recent example being Gonzalo Lira.
