Alert! Good News
NARSOL In Action
Wednesday, June 21st
8:00 to 9:30 p.m. E.D.T.
You are invited to hear about a fantastic win in the United States Supreme Court. This month’s conference call will focus on the case of Packingham v North Carolina, which is a very important First Amendment case just decided today which we expect to have far reaching ramifications. The issue before the court was N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-202.5, which makes it a felony for any person required to be listed on the state’s registry of former sex offenders to “access” a wide array of social networking websites. It was noted that more than 1000 have been convicted in addition to Packingham. The high court reversed the North Carolina Supreme Court’s decision and held that the total ban is too broad.
Our special guest will be attorney Glenn Gerding who spoke at our annual conference and was significant in the development of this case.
