Winning. Supreme Court to Hear NRA Free Speech Case.
The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether an official violated the First Amendment when she encouraged companies to stop doing business with the National Rifle Association.
Maria Vullo, a former New York State Department of Financial Services superintendent, is accused of coercing companies to cut off their NRA connections following the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.
According to prosecutors, Vullo leveraged government power in an illicit way when she asked whether banks and insurance companies should continue to provide services to the group.
