No on E v. Chiu

On March 27, 2024, the Liberty Justice Center filed an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hear No on E v. Chiu, a case challenging San Francisco’s compelled disclosures for political speech. The brief argues that hijacking political expression with onerous disclosure requirements violates the First Amendment—both directly, by compelling speech, and indirectly, by chilling speech due to privacy concerns.

The Liberty Justice Center also filed an amicus brief with the Ninth Circuit Court in March 2023, urging the Court to grant en banc review and reverse the panel decision formerly made in the case. The brief argues that San Francisco’s requirement that political speakers disclose not only their donors, but also their donors’ donors, in an ongoing “genealogy” of donations, fails both the strict scrutiny test to which it is rightfully subject and the lesser scrutiny test which the panel chose to apply.
