The Media Coalition and a group of booksellers, librarians, publishers and media organizations have filed a friend-of-the-court brief in Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus, a case before the Supreme Court, urging the court to "reaffirm the principle that persons who have a well-founded fear of prosecution under a law that infringes First Amendment rights should have standing to bring a 'pre-enforcement' challenge to the law, and need not face a choice between engaging in self-censorship and risking criminal prosecution."
Media Coalition executive director David Horowitz commented: "This case threatens the ability of any group, association or individual to challenge a law that violates free speech rights. If booksellers, publishers and librarians can only vindicate their First Amendment rights through a criminal trial, this will cause a profound chilling effect on free speech."
