SCA: censorship allegations “lack standing”

From CHD’s CEO Mary Holland:

Wednesday was a sad day for freedom of speech in America — but the fight isn’t over. Not by a long shot. We need your help to continue the fight to protect our rights.

I am deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision that the plaintiffs in Murthy v. Missouri — two states and five individuals — “lack standing” to pursue claims that the government coerced social media platforms to censor independent speech.

While CHD believes the 6-3 majority got it wrong — and the dissent got it right — we are focused on continuing the fight.

But we need your help today. Here’s why.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and CHD filed a separate lawsuit in the same court as the Missouri plaintiffs because Kennedy and CHD were directly and traceably censored — and continue to be heavily censored.

Our case is about to resume in the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision, and we believe it can overcome the weaknesses in the Murthycase.

Complex litigation costs money — a lot of it. So today, I’m asking you to make a donation to support our battle against censorship.

We are fighting censorship in several cases where you can make a critical difference:

  • We are awaiting a decision from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in CHD v. Meta Platforms in our case against Facebook, its fact-checkers and Mark Zuckerberg’s joint action with the government to demonetize, shadow ban and deplatform CHD.
  • We are awaiting a ruling in a case in Washington, D.C., against the Trusted News Initiative — including Reuters, Associated Press and The Washington Post — for colluding with Big Tech to censor CHD and many other independent news outlets in an illegal group boycott that violates antitrust laws.
  • We’re representing doctors in California, Washington and Maine, where the state licensing boards and the states themselves are preventing doctors from speaking freely with their patients and the public.
  • And we’re moving forward in Kennedy v. Biden to stop federal officials from coercing and encouraging social media giants to stamp us out.

The next government-declared emergency — whether bird flu or climate lockdown or some other alleged catastrophe — may be just around the corner.

Let’s make sure CHD and other independent news outlets can get you necessary, potentially lifesaving information.

With your support, we can win the fight to uphold the First Amendment.

Please give what you can.

Free speech and freedom of the press are worth it!

With thanks,
