Article: Justice Souter on Government Speech

Since August 27, 2010, I have published nine posts dealing with the First Amendment topic of government speech and now-retired Justice David Souter‘s engagement with the topic.

The government speech doctrine began in the Supreme Court with Rust v. Sullivan, 500 U.S. 173 (1991)–see post of September 7, 2010–handed down in Justice Souter’s first term, and continued through Pleasant Grove City v. Summum, 129 S. Ct. 1125 (2009)–see post of December 30, 2010–handed down in Justice Souter’s last term.

My posts, which have separately addressed all of the Supreme Court’s government speech cases, were based on drafts of a  then-forthcoming Brigham Young University Law Review article.

The article, now published, is entitled Justice Souter on Government Speech and its cite is 2010 Brigham Young Univ. L. Rev. 2097.

It is now available for downloading through the link below. I hope you find it informative.
