AFLDS and Simone Gold, M.D., J.D. file amici curiae brief in SCOTUS Case

AFLDS and Simone Gold, M.D., J.D. file amici curiae brief in SCOTUS Case in support of Respondents in Vivek H. Murthy, Surgeon General, et al. v. Missouri, et al., 23-411, (U.S.2023).  

This case continues to be one of  the most significant First Amendment, free speech, and civil rights cases in our Nation’s history. The original plaintiffs, now Respondents, including supporters and activists in the burgeoning medical freedom movement, are especially and justifiably prayerful for a swift and judicious affirmance of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Ruling.

New Orleans, LA – February 9, 2024

On Friday, February 9, 2024, the America’s Frontline Doctors’ (AFLDS) legal team vigilantly filed an amici curiae (friends of the court) brief on behalf of AFLDS and Simone Gold, M.D., J.D. in support of the Respondents for affirmance (agreement with) of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, New Orleans, LA. In short, we are asking the High Court to permanently ban our government from interfering and colluding with Big Tech companies to suppress free speech, especially in the social media arena. 

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Missouri and Louisiana v Biden et al., affirmed and modified the injunction by Judge Doughty, who recognized AFLDS’ video press conference of July 2020 as being “censored” by social media platforms at the behest of Fauci. The name of the case changed to Vivek H. Murthy, Surgeon General, Petitioners v. Missouri, et al. when it was assigned to SCOTUS. The “Respondents” that we are supporting on the side of Free Speech are the winning plaintiffs in the lower courts, including the two plaintiff states of Missouri and Louisiana, Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit, and several doctors.

This is the second amici curiae brief  that AFLDS’ legal team has contributed to this case - the first of which was filed in August of last year. Our press release dated August 10, 2023 summarizes the significance of the Missouri and Louisiana, et al. v. Biden, et al case in the fight to maintain our constitutionally-protected right to free speech.

As stated by an AFLDS affiliated attorney, David Dalia, our fight continues, as it “is an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment for government officials to coerce, strongarm, or threaten private social media companies to remove or suppress free speech with which they disagree. Government officials should know this. They can’t violate the Constitution just because a government actor has a different (and unconstitutional) opinion. We join with dozens of other organizations, media outlets and states in asking the United States Supreme Court to reinstate the Fifth Circuit injunction, which merely requires the government actor Defendants to follow the Constitution.”

AFLDS continues to work diligently to fight all forms of unconstitutional tyranny. Our amici curiae brief submission signals to the Supreme Court that more medical free speech is needed, not less, and to allow each American to decide what information they want to consider.

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."
