Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Carrie Severino


A Massachusetts statute makes it a crime for speakers other than “employees or agents . . . acting within the scope of their employment” to “enter or remain on a public way or sidewalk” within thirty-five feet of an entrance, exit, or driveway of “a reproductive health care facility.” The statute was challenged and upheld by the First Circuit Court of Appeals. Was the First Circuit correct under First and Fourteenth Amendment analysis?

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in McCullen v. Coakley on January 15, 2014. Our expert, Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network, will attend the oral arguments and offer her perspectives on the merits of the case and its likely outcome.


  • Carrie Severino, Chief Counsel and Policy Director, Judicial Crisis Network

Call begins at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
