Content-based restriction on doctors’ speech to patients about guns passes ‘strict scrutiny’
By Eugene Volokh December 16
Monday, a three-judge U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit panel handed down a third opinion in Wollschlaeger v. Governor, the Florida “Docs vs. Glocks” case. [ ... ]
In fact, much of the argument that the 11th Circuit panel accepted is structurally very similar to arguments used for restrictions on “hate speech,” campus speech codes and the like. I hope the 11th Circuit reconsiders the matter en banc, and adopts the dissenting judge’s view; or, failing that, I hope the U.S. Supreme Court decides to hear the case.
First, what does the statute actually do?[my emphasis]
This is the third opinion, maybe the third time is the charm. Volokh comments at some length.
