THE MORTGAGE SPECIALISTS, INC. v. IMPLODE-EXPLODE HEAVY INDUSTRIES, INC. | No. 2009-0262 | N.H. June 22, 2009 | The Cyberlaw Clinic and Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press submitted this amicus brief (pdf) with support from local counsel at Drummond Woodsum & MacMahon. It was submitted to the New Hampshire Supreme Court on behalf of Citizen Media Law Project and Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Amici urged the court to defend the First Amendment rights of a website that covers news about the mortgage industry. Public Citizen submitted a separate amicus brief, addressing issues in the case relating to anonymity and unmasking of pseudonymous speakers online. The New Hampshire Supreme Court’s decision in the case directly mirrored many of the arguments advanced in the Clinic’s brief regarding unlawful prior restraints on speech.
