In the #9thCircuit today, @prageru is challenging a federal judge's dismissal of its First Amendment lawsuit against Google (YouTube), claiming it restricted access to its videos as a "political gag mechanism" against conservative content. @CourthouseNews
Attorney for @prageru argues that YouTube is a public forum and is subject to First Amendment of scrutiny. Judge Mary Margaret McKeown says, "You can puff and say you are a public forum but that does not define your First Amendment status."
@prageru Judge Jay Bybee says he is impressed by the list of videos @prageru has put in the record. “It seems deeply disturbing that they put your stuff in the restricted area," he says, adding, "But I’m not sure that creates a First Amendment issue.”
