Letters to Judge Analisa Torres

BREAKING: The ACLU, the Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression have submitted letters to Judge Analisa Torres supporting First Amendment rights for all journalists in response to the unconstitutional FBI raids on Project Veritas in 2021

“Opening the door for criminalization of journalists‘ receipt or possession of expressive materials would result in censorious prosecutions under existing law and inspire legislators to conjure up disastrous new ways to thwart journalists seeking to expose malfeasance. Amici urge this Court to affirm that the First Amendment protects a reporter’s right to receive and possess documents on matters of public concern that were unlawfully obtained or disclosed by a third party. Any other result would undermine not only the Supreme Court’s holding in Bartnicki, but also decades of precedent protecting newsgathering and other necessary antecedents to constitutionally protected speech.”
