Argument Held On First Amendment Challenge to Missouri’s Informed Consent Law
We noted back in October that the Supreme Court of Missouri accepted transfer to hear a novel First Amendment challenge to Missouri’s abortion informed consent law. The case has now been (January 23, 2018) argued and the audio is available at the Court’s website here: https://www.courts.mo.gov/page.jsp?id=119842 For those interested in the art of oral argument, take note of how Appellant’s counsel tries to weave his theme and legal points into a compelling story for his client and returns to it with each question from the bench. It isn’t for me to say whether his efforts were successful. And we’ll know in a few weeks how the Court will come down on the case. But it is a captivating listen.
