mentioned again in a case briefing to the Supreme Court of the United States
was once again mentioned in a briefing before the Supreme Court of the United
States by the Pacific Legal Foundation, which filed an Amicus Curiae Brief in
the case Federal Elections Commission V. Christine Beaumont case.
The brief is regarding questions about the
prohibitions of corporations and labor unions to make campaign contributions
and the First Amendment to the Constitution as applied to a nonprofit
corporation primarily engaged in political advocacy.
Boycott Watch acknowledges that freedom of speech is
vital to a free society, no matter where it comes from. Boycott Watch has not
previously been in contact with the Pacific Legal Foundation, and thanks them
for mentioning Boycott Watch in their briefing.
Commenting on the briefing, Boycott Watch Executive
Director Fred Taub, said "We are very pleased to see our work is one again
recognized by the Pacific Legal Foundation, whose motto is 'Defending our
Freedom, Preserving Our Liberties.' "
"Boycott watch is a leading authority on consumer boycotts and will continue to
use our First Amendment rights to champion the rights of consumers who wish to
learn the full story from an unbiased source presenting both sides of the
story. Our goal is to report the facts so consumers can decide for themselves
what the truth is. The Pacific Legal Foundation mention of Boycott Watch in an
Amicus Curiae briefing to the USSC a second time further establishes that
Boycott Watch is not only a vital and highly respected organization and a vital
consumer source, but a valued voice of freedom and democracy as well."
