Subject:  In Defense of Free Speech  

Private citizens have a right to speak their concerns publicly. That right is not only a protected constitutional right but is also no protected by a law that provides every citizen civil remedies if the have been retaliated against for exercising their rights. Ask an attorney about Florida’s “SLAPP Act” If anyone has been sued by a public figure for speaking their mind or opposing that public figure they have extraordinary remedies set forth in a law enacted in 2011 which provides strong civil remedies designed to remedy the harm cause by a public official seeking to suppress their voice through the use of court actions to suppress their free speech.
