"Because the court finds that SB 1172 is subject to strict scrutiny and is unlikely to satisfy this standard, the court finds that plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the merits of their . . . claims based on violations of their rights to freedom of speech under the First Amendment," wrote Judge Shubb.
"This victory sends a clear signal to all those who feel they can stifle religious freedom, free speech, and the rights of parents without being contested," said PJI President, Brad Dacus. "We at PJI are ready to fight this battle all the way to the supreme court, if necessary. This will be a long enduring battle with tremendous consequences for generations to come. We are grateful to those who are willing to support us in this critical time to preserve our freedoms and protect our children," he continued.
