Today the Freedom Center of Missouri asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review Kansas City Premier Apartments v. Missouri Real Estate Commission in order to clarify that whenever a citizen challenges a law that restricts speech protected by the First Amendment, the government must show substantial evidence proving why the restriction is necessary. Despite more than a dozen U.S. Supreme Court decisions establishing this principle, at least ten state supreme courts continue to uphold speech restrictions without requiring the government to justify the restrictions.
