Imagine not being able to speak your mind or being fired from your job for refusing to participate in illegal activity. Imagine the government taking your property without compensation. This is what UMLC is fighting against!
The Upper Midwest Law Center (UMLC) filed a federal lawsuit challenging a new Minnesota law that restricts free speech around election-related issues, including speech about the eligibility to vote in Minnesota elections. The law, which took effect June 15, 2023, imposes criminal and civil penalties on individuals who knowingly make materially false statements within 60 days of an election with the intent to impede or prevent another person from exercising their right to vote.
In this episode of Minnesota Law Weekly, James Dickey of the Upper Midwest Law Center discusses a common theme in some of their cases: the government can’t use its investigatory power to punish citizens for speaking on politics.
Upper Midwest Law Center is excited to share a couple of recent case updates that underscore our commitment to justice, accountability, and individual rights. Let’s dive into the latest case developments!
UMLC engages in legal battles to ensure that every Minnesotan's right to fair and secure elections remains intact and aim to prevent any erosion of trust in our electoral processes. With the state under total left-wing control, the need to ensure election integrity has never been more urgent.
UMLC filed a petition for review with the Minnesota Supreme Court, seeking to challenge a decision rendered by the Court of Appeals in the case, Snell vs. Tim Walz.
