The National Law Journal's Tony Mauro on the debate over free speech on the Supreme Court Plaza (registration and/or subscription may be required). The press routinely covers litigant and lawyer statements from that spot. In addition, a case pending before the D.C. Circuit, Hodge v. Talkin, argues that the public has the right both to speech and expressive activity in the plaza. Mr. Hodge won his case before the District Court in June of 2013. The government has appealed, even though the regulation at issue under the case has since been replaced. More coverage of that ruling here from the Christian Science Monitor. Coverage of the appeal here from the BLT (Blog of Legal Times).
