Free Speech Wins

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a decision and returned a First Amendment and Free Political Speech case to the U.S. District Court in MN.

On April 29, 2011, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued an opinion reversing the U.S. District Court’s decision in the 281 Care Committee case.  The opinion can be found here.

Erick Kaardal comments, “This published opinion is significant for Minnesotans in knocking down jurisdictional barriers to access to their federal district court when suing the Minnesota government for free speech violations.  We look forward to arguing the case in District Court on the merits.”

Nice to know we still follow the Constitution every once in a while!
