Public Advocate Defends Judges who block Joe Biden from tech contacts in First Amendment case
JUDGES TERRY A. DOUGHTY, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE. MAG. JUDGE KAYLA D. MCCLUSKY (Photo above) issued stunning rebuke to the Biden Administration defending the First Amendment.
In Missouri versus Biden, Public Advocate seeks to protect all first amendment rights on social media platforms in the United States. Federal judges ordered Joe Biden and the federal government to cease all harassment of conservatives on social media July 4th. Public Advocate and Missouri and other groups are now (today) defending this order by the federal judge before an appeals court.
Here is the amicus brief being filed in defense of the important injunction against Biden overreach and the abolition of the First Amendment. Public Advocate is on the brief and has obtained the support of a broad coalition of other grass roots groups.

On May 5, 2022, Missouri, Louisiana, and five individual plaintiffs filed suit against President Biden and a large number of officials in his administration. The lawsuit alleged "a gargantuan federal 'Censorship Enterprise' ... [that] has stifled debate and criticism of government policy on social media about some of the most pressing issues of our time."
The plaintiffs alleged that the Biden administration had pressured social media companies to promote government-approved speech and censor speech critical of the administration and its policies, including with regard to COVID, election interference, and posts critical of Biden personally.
On July 4, 2023, the district court issued an extraordinarily comprehensive opinion supporting issuance of a preliminary injunction forbidding most defendants from "urging, encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner social-media companies to remove, delete, suppress, or reduce posted content protected by the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution."
