Indiana hears free speech case

The Indiana supreme court has agreed to hear Dan Brewington's appeal. He was convicted of a criticizing a judge, and now sits in prison. Eagle Forum co-sponsored an amicus brief in favor of a free speech right to criticize government officials for their official actions. UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh will join the oral argument on Sept. 12.

Correction: It appears to be an oral argument over whether to accept the case. Regardless, this appears to be how the Indiana supreme court decides that a free speech issue is at stake.
