Alliance Joins Brief for Appeal in Project Veritas v. New York Times

On January 12, the Alliance joined an amicus brief by the Reporters Committee filed in the Supreme Court of New York Appellate Division. After the lower court ordered the Times to turn over its materials, destroy electronic copies, and refrain from publishing any material on the Project Veritas story, the appeals court issued a stay. The amicus brief argues the appeals court should overturn the order as an unconstitutional prior restraint on speech. The Alliance signed onto an earlier brief in the lower court and will continue to support press freedom by fighting against antiquated orders and bad precedent.
