Supreme Court to decide Presidential Immunity, social media censorship soon

"Public Advocate attorneys have filed amicus briefs in favor of Presidential Immunity from prosecution with the court, and filed amicus briefs arguing in favor of prevent the crushing censorship of conservative voices on social media platforms. Leftist freaks control major social media platforms and violate first amendment and federal election laws routinely. Public Advocate is supporting some state restrictions on social media censorship and seeking a prohibition on federal censorship of free speech by the Biden Administration in our respective amicus briefs, " says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.

Delgaudio said "Our attorneys have filed amicus briefs explaining that President Trump could not be charged with obstruction of a legislative process since he was no where near the Capitol which is the Court precedent in this specific history of that provision of the law."

Associated Press reports:

The Supreme Court is headed into its final week with about a quarter of the cases heard this year still undecided, including ones that could reshape the law on everything from abortion to social media. The justices are also still weighing whether former President Donald Trump is immune from criminal prosecution in the election interference case against him, roughly two months after hearing arguments.

The court heard 61 cases this term, and 15 remain unresolved.

Here's a look at some of the major undecided cases:

Presidential immunity

Donald Trump is arguing that former presidents are immune from prosecution for official acts they took in office and that the indictment he faces on charges of election interference must be dismissed.

The Supreme Court has previously ruled that former presidents can't be sued in civil cases for what they did in office, but it has never weighed in on criminal immunity.

The timing of the decision may be as important as the outcome. Trump's trial in Washington, D.C., may not take place before the November election, even if the court rules he is not immune.

Social media

Three cases remain unresolved at the intersection of social media and government.

Two cases involve social media laws in Texas and Florida that would limit how Facebook, TikTok, X, YouTube and other social media platforms regulate content posted by their users. While the details vary, both laws aimed to address conservative complaints that the social media companies were liberal-leaning and censored users based on their viewpoints, especially on the political right.

In the third case, Republican-led states are suing the Biden administration over how far the federal government can go to combat controversial social media posts on topics including COVID-19 and election security. A federal appeals court sided with the states in finding that administration officials unconstitutionally coerced the platforms to limit conservative points of view.
