I will answer general questions regarding freedom of speech, petition, or religion. My specialty is in cases involving public employment or education, as well as issues related to campaign finance. I can`t give specific legal advice involving specific cases you might have.
As an attorney for the Center for Individual Rights, I worked on a number of free speech cases, including Rosenberger v. Univ. of Virginia, in which the Supreme Court upheld my clients' right to run a student newspaper without discrimination because of its religious content. I also worked on White v. Julian, which protected the right of people to protest against a homeless shelter in their neighborhood.
I also worked for the Federal Election Commission on several cases regarding the right to participate in the election process and engage in campaign related speech.

Gitlow and Schenk both allowed the punishment of speech deemed dangerous to society generally. Both decisions leave a huge amount of discretion up to to the judge to determine what could be banned, so
Hello, While it certainly seems to be against the spirit of the First Amendment, there is a long tradition of allowing the Congress and President to reject entry into the US for reasons of ideology
