Liberty Justice Center


Vitagliano v. County of Westchester

An aspiring sidewalk counselor is challenging a recent law creating a 100-foot “bubble zone” around abortion clinics in Westchester County, NY. This law prohibits anyone in the “bubble zone” from approaching within eight feet of another person—but only if the reason for approaching is “oral protest, education, or counseling.” The plaintiff is asking the Supreme Court to hear her case after a lower court dismissed it, relying on a 2000 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Hill v. Colorado.

The Liberty Justice Center’s amicus brief argues that Hill should be overturned because it was too lax in allowing the government to restrict speech based on its subject matter.
