Scalia Spotlights

Supreme Court Clinic Files Amicus Brief In Nifla v. Becerra

On behalf of 144 Members of Congress, Scalia Law's Supreme Court Clinic filed an amicus brief in NIFLA v. Becerra opposing compelled speech requirements. The brief states that California’s Reproductive FACT ACT violates the First Amendment rights of pro-life pregnancy centers, forcing them to engage in speech that directly contradicts their own message and deeply held beliefs. The brief asks the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld the California law.

 Adjunct Professor Patrick Strawbridge is the Counsel of Record on the brief.  Professor Jennifer Mascott and Adjunct Professor Caroline Cook joined Strawbridge and the clinic students in writing the brief.
