Supreme Court winning law firm offers comment on Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta and Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee
WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 1, 2021) — Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued two rulings. The Liberty Justice Center, a national public interest law firm committed to protecting fundamental constitutional rights, is known for its U.S. Supreme Court victory for free speech in Janus v. AFSCME. Its attorneys filed amicus briefs in Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta and Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee.
Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta
Liberty Justice Center Senior attorneys are committed to protecting privacy as a right for all individuals and organizations and have challenged attempts to limit donor privacy in Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and Rhode Island.
“Today’s decision is a clear victory for free speech in an era where Americans’ rights are seemingly under constant threat,” said Daniel Suhr, managing attorney at the Liberty Justice Center. “The impact of this ruling extends beyond donor privacy. The First Amendment protects all individuals’ and groups’ right to support causes, popular and unpopular. Privacy is integral to a country that respects our freedom to speak and associate freely.”
Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee
The Liberty Justice Center’s amicus brief was cited by Justice Samuel Alito in the Court’s opinion in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee. In the brief, managing attorney Daniel Suhr recounts a recent battle in Wisconsin where district courts ran rampant in the absence of clear guidance from the Supreme Court, before the new election law was ultimately vindicated on appeal.
“Today’s decision is a victory for common sense election regulations that make voting easier and cheating harder,” said Daniel Suhr, managing attorney at the Liberty Justice Center. “All of us deserve clear, fair, predictable rules for elections. This decision ensures that elected officials, rather than unaccountable judges, are the ones setting clear, fair rules in advance of an election.”
