Temperatures rise in Mann libel suit

    JD Supra: Alliance Defending Freedom filed an amicus brief “to highlight the First Amendment’s safeguard of offensive or inflammatory speech and the important role that hyperbole plays in American politics” in order “to ensure that the protections provided by the Free Speech Clause are broadly construed and not restricted by defamation laws.” Its brief argued that the challenged statements fit comfortably within the sphere of speech that has been traditionally afforded broad First Amendment protection. My favorite sentence: “If this Court were to do an about-face from traditional First Amendment values, then debates on political topics, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the refusal to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, and the merits of universal healthcare, as well as other matters of public concern where hyperbole and accusatory language are coin of the realm would likewise be chilled.”
