The title of this post is the stunning quote from the Paul Hastings attorney who is representing JPL in the Coppedge case. Is it possible that a partner at a reputable firm has no knowledge of “viewpoint discrimination”? Could this be why this case hasn’t settled yet?
This quote is from a deposition transcript and can be found on page 21 of one the case documents.
Viewpoint discrimination is a well-established legal principle discussed in several Supreme Court opinions, including Good News Club v. Milford Central School.
