Spokane Freedom of Speech Attorney
Know Your Rights by Calling Our Civil Rights Attorney Today
Freedom of Speech falls under the very first amendment in the United States Constitution under the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from the interference of government. However, this freedom of speech branches off into multiple avenues affecting multiple institutions, but it is always important to remember that people have the power to express whatever they deem necessary.
Freedom of Speech includes:
- Freedom of Religion
- Freedom of Speech
- Freedom of the Press
- Right to Assembly
- Right to Petition
While the first amendment might not strictly identify some of these it has become the position of the Supreme Court that all of these inherently fall under the protection of the first amendment. However, there are some limitations as the courts has also restricted speech that might cause violence or disruption of the peace. This especially extends to Right to Assembly because of the possibility of injury if violence were to break out.
