A religious liberty law firm is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to take up a free speech case now that the court has referenced it by name.
Liberty Counsel is petitioning the high court to review the New Jersey lawsuit King v. Christie, a case that upheld a ban on change counsel and which Liberty Counsel says the court abrogated last year by name.
Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver tells OneNewsNow the Supreme Court mentioned the case when the justices reviewed NIFLA v Becerra, a California case challenging that state’s controversial law that clamped down on crisis pregnancy centers.
A second case, Pickup v Brown, was also cited by the court, Staver says.
“These were the first two change counsel cases that both went the wrong way against our arguments,” Staver says, “and last year the United States Supreme Court abrogated both of them expressly by name.”
