The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights protects freedom of speech for all Americans. The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment applies the First Amendment to every state, including any local government within a state. As is the case with many states, freedom of speech is also protected by the Massachusetts constitution.

Litigation involving freedom of speech concerns matters such as:

  • Defamation
  • Political speech
  • Commercial speech
  • Time, place, and manner restrictions on speech
  • Censorship
  • Obscenity
