First Amendment Clinic achieves its first win

Monday, May 18, 2020

The First Amendment Clinic won its first case with the assistance of co-counsel Gerry R. Weber Jr. (J.D.’89). The settlement included equitable relief, damages and attorneys’ fees on behalf of a Douglas County (Ga.) resident who was blocked from her county commissioner’s official-purpose Facebook page. The result was covered by the Douglas County Sentinel. First Amendment Clinic Director and Clinical Assistant Professor Clare R. Norins said she was pleased the newspaper covered the case because it will educate “readers and other politicians about the state of the law on government officials blocking people on social media based on the viewpoint of their speech - i.e., they can’t do it!”
