On Monday, March 18, Institute for Free Speech Senior Attorney, Charles “Chip” Miller joined a panel of experts assembled by the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at American University’s Washington College of Law to discuss the implications of Murthy v. Missouri, an important free speech case recently argued before the Supreme Court.

The panel discussed the questions presented in the case: “(1) Whether respondents have Article III standing; (2) whether the government’s challenged conduct transformed private social media companies’ content-moderation decisions into state action and violated respondents’ First Amendment rights; and (3) whether the terms and breadth of the preliminary injunction are proper.”

The Institute also filed an amicus brief in the case urging the Supreme Court to establish a clear, robust prohibition against government officials privately soliciting the removal or suppression of lawful political speech. Chip Miller and fellow Institute Senior Attorney Brett Nolan, co-authors of the amicus brief, wrote an opinion piece for Bloomberg Law underscoring the need for a bright-line rule as well.
