Supreme Court Advocacy

We file friend-of-the-court (amicus) briefs in leading U.S. Supreme Court cases that bear on the effects of technology on democracy.

One of the most direct ways we channel our research into advocacy with impact is drafting amicus briefs seeking to persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to balance carefully the benefits of digital services against their unintended consequences. In our filings, we have argued that while tech companies require more sustained government regulation, the First Amendment free speech rights of platforms and their users constrain the reach of regulation.
