ACLU Amicus Brief

On August 24, 2018, the ACLU submitted an amicus brief in support of the NRA, accurately describing defendant's conduct as "viewpoint discrimination."

In a statement regarding the brief, ACLU Legal Director David Cole wrote, "In the ACLU’s view, targeting a nonprofit advocacy group and seeking to deny it financial services because it promotes a lawful activity (the use of guns) violates the First Amendment. Because we believe the governor’s actions, as alleged, threaten the First Amendment rights of all advocacy organizations, the ACLU... filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the NRA’s right to have its day in court."

Read the amicus brief.
