Senior Attorney Brett Nolan Analyzes Gonzalez v. Trevino with the Federalist Society

March 29, 2024   •  By IFS Staff   •    •  

Institute for Free Speech Senior Attorney Brett Nolan joined the Federalist Society’s “A Seat at the Sitting” program on Thursday, March 14 to break down Gonzalez v. Trevino, argued before the Supreme Court the following week on March 20.

“A Seat at the Sitting” convenes a monthly panel of constitutional experts to discuss the Court’s upcoming docket. Brett’s comments on Gonzalez v. Trevino explored the standards required for a plaintiff alleging an arrest in retaliation for speech protected by the First Amendment, focusing on what evidence must be shown to prove such a claim, especially in light of exceptions outlined in precedent cases.

The Institute for Free Speech filed an amicus brief in the case advising the Supreme Court to overturn a Fifth Circuit ruling that makes it nearly impossible for citizens to hold police accountable for retaliatory arrests aimed at silencing criticism.
