Greenberg V. Haggerty Et Al

Summary: This lawsuit, filed by Zachary Greenberg in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, challenges the constitutionality of Pennsylvania Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(g). Greenberg, a licensed attorney in Pennsylvania and Program Officer for the organization FIRE, argues that the rule violates his First Amendment rights by restricting his ability to express controversial opinions and engage in advocacy related to his work. The lawsuit seeks a declaration that Rule 8.4(g) is unconstitutional and an injunction preventing its enforcement against Greenberg. It also raises concerns about the potential misuse of the rule to harass speakers for political reasons and highlights instances where individuals, including Supreme Court Justices, have faced accusations of prejudice and bias based on their opinions and comments.

United States of America v. Robert Hunter Biden

Summary: Hunter Biden is currently embroiled in a lawsuit, accused of purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018 while allegedly using illegal substances. Despite denying drug use on the necessary paperwork, if found guilty, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison along with substantial fines. Biden's defense team contends that the charges are politically driven, asserting that Biden's temporary possession of an unloaded firearm did not constitute a public safety risk. They intend to contest the charges, leveraging an agreement with the prosecution, recent federal court decisions, and potential Second Amendment defenses. This case could potentially ignite wider discussions about Second Amendment rights, especially as the Supreme Court is poised to deliberate on a related issue concerning gun ownership for individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Opinions are divided among political and legislative figures, with some speculating that advocates of the Second Amendment might oppose the law that prohibits gun ownership for drug users.
