Veritas Suit Makes First Amendment HISTORY: Changes MA. Recording Law

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 21:11
Massachusetts Law Prohibiting Secret Recording of Public Officials Deemed Unconstitutional
US District Court for the District of Massachusetts Rules in Veritas’ Favor
“[T]he Court holds that [Massachusetts law] may not constitutionally prohibit the secret audio recording of government officials…”
Secretly Recording Government Officials in Public Places Now Protected by First Amendment

 

(Boston) Project Veritas attorneys Benjamin Barr and Steve Klein have received word from the United States Court for the District of Massachusetts of its victory in Project Veritas Action Fund v. Conley. The lawsuit filed against the state argued that the Massachusetts law prohibiting the secret recording of public officials was unconstitutional.

Said James O’Keefe, founder and president of Project Veritas Action:

“Project Veritas has made First Amendment history. With the summary judgement in this case being entered in our favor, PVA v Conley becomes the first case in United States history to hold that secretly recording government officials is protected by the First Amendment” 

View the Court Order here.

Filed on December 10, 2018, the United States District Court District of Massachusetts found, “the First Amendment protects the right to record audio and video of government officials,” deeming the law prohibiting secret recordings of government officials unconstitutional.

The unconstitutional law, enforceable in Massachusetts since 1968, allowed for a felony conviction for up to five years in prison, and a $10,000 for the secret recording of a public official.

Audio Recording is More Powerful Than Ordinary Reporting

The Court explained in the judgement that “audio and audiovisual recording are uniquely reliable and powerful methods of preserving and disseminating news and information about events that occur in public. Their self-authenticating character makes it highly unlikely that other methods could be considered reasonably adequate substitutes.”

The Court agreed in the judgment that secretly recording government officials is a “basic, vital, and well-established liberty safeguarded by the First Amendment.”

Said Project Veritas Action Fund’s attorney Ben Barr, of the victory:

“Veritas’ win demonstrates that undercover reporting is protected just as adamantly as ordinary reporting under the First Amendment, allowing it to continue to deliver important news to the American public.”

Project Veritas is aware of other states with similarly prohibitive recording laws.

State Probe into Possible Illegal Voting in Texas

Project Veritas video captured on Election Day 2018 has prompted the Texas attorney general’s office to investigate alleged illegal voting in Travis County.

I can’t verify if this is accurate. I CAN verify that it will be investigated and if it IS accurate, illegal votes will be tossed out and wrongdoers will be prosecuted. #txlege #tcot #PJNEThttps://t.co/CdrhV8YonH via @gatewaypundit
