The Freedom Center of Missouri has asked the United States Supreme Court to consider whether the First Amendment allows the Missouri Supreme Court to presume that government restrictions on speech are constitutional and to require the speaker to prove the law unconstitutional. The Missouri Attorney General’s Office responded to our Petition by trying to mislead the justices about the First Amendment arguments the Freedom Center has made and also by trying to pretend that the Missouri Supreme Court’s explanation for its decision against Kansas City Premier Apartment should not be taken at face value. Today the Freedom Center filed its final effort to persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to take the case, pointing out several ways in which the Attorney General’s Office twisted the truth about this case.
