On April 22, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Inc. The question in the case is whether United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003, 22 U.S.C. § 7631(f), which requires an organization to have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking in order to receive federal funding to provide HIV and AIDS programs overseas, violates the First Amendment.
To discuss the case we have Erik Jaffe, a Washington, D.C. attorney who specializes in appellate litigation.
