AFLDS files amici curiae brief in support of plaintiff-appellees in Missouri and Louisiana, et al. v. Biden, et al.
This lawsuit is poised to be the most significant First Amendment, free speech, and civil rights case in our nation’s history. The plaintiffs, including supporters and activists in the burgeoning medical freedom movement, are especially and justifiably prayerful for a swift and judicious outcome.
New Orleans, LA – August 10, 2023
On Monday, August 7, 2023, the Americas Frontline Doctors’ (AFLDS) legal team vigilantly filed an amici curiae (friend of the court) brief on behalf of AFLDS and Simone Gold, M.D., J.D in support of plaintiffs with the U.S. Court of Appeals in the Fifth Circuit, New Orleans, LA.
Missouri and Louisiana, et al. v. Biden, et al.
Missouri and Louisiana, et al. v. Biden, et al. was filed in May 2022, and the plaintiffs include several highly credentialed doctors (Drs. Bhattacharya, Kulldorff, Kheriaty) and health professional Jill Hines, Co-Director of Health Freedom Louisiana. The plaintiffs allege the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to censor their free speech opinions and scientific facts concerning a myriad of COVID-19-related topics including masking, lockdowns, early treatment, and the COVID-19 “vaccines.”
In September 2022, the presiding Judge, Terri A. Doughty, issued a rare and unprecedented “expedited” discovery requirement (discovery is required to be produced and exchanged by both parties in a lawsuit). This expedited discovery process revealed a plethora of alarming documents which proved unelected bureaucrats colluded with one another against the plaintiffs. In an October 2022 order, Judge Doughty wrote that, “…Plaintiffs have proven that Dr. Fauci has personal knowledge about the issue concerning censorship across social media as related to COVID-19 and ancillary issues of COVID-19.”
The discovery documents have thus far revealed a monstrous, interconnected web and cabal, which includes Fauci, the CDC, State Department, White House, and high-ranking government officials and agencies – each of whom colluded in tandem and “significantly encouraged” and “coerced” social-media platforms to suppress the plaintiffs’ Constitutionally protected free speech on their platforms.
Kennedy, et al. v. Biden, et al.
A class action lawsuit, Kennedy, et al. v. Biden, et al., was filed in March 2023, and includes plaintiffs Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Children’s Health Defense (CHD), and Connie Sampognaro (a healthcare professional in Louisiana), who allege the same claims as plaintiffs in Missouri v. Biden against the Biden regime. Judge Doughty recognized the parallels between the two cases, including the same defendants (Biden, his high-ranking staff, and Fauci), and consolidated the two cases in July 2023.
AFLDS – Recognition by Judge Doughty
Recently, Dr. Gold and AFLDS were named in a 155-page memorandum ruling by Judge Doughty, who recognized AFLDS’ first video press conference of July 2020 as being “censored” by social media platforms at the behest of Fauci. Judge Doughty’s incredible ruling in overwhelming support of the plaintiffs was perhaps symbolically and intentionally filed on Independence Day, July 4, 2023.
These combined cases are not just pivotal for retaining the plaintiffs’ obvious, Constitutionally protected First Amendment right to free speech. The outcome is critical for every patriotic, freedom-loving American. If free speech of highly credentialed scientists, doctors, and civil rights activists like Dr. Gold in this case can be criminally and unconstitutionally squashed at the whims of our Federal Government, then every American should be alarmed.
As stated by an AFLDS affiliated attorney, “It is an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment for government officials to coerce, strongarm, or threaten private social media companies to remove or suppress free speech with which they disagree. Government officials should know this.”
AFLDS continues to work diligently to fight all forms of unconstitutional tyranny. Noting a list of his crimes, Dr. Gold and the frontline doctors recently presented more than 100,000 petitions, signed by the American people, to Congress calling for the arrest of Fauci.
The highly anticipated Fifth Circuit oral argument in Missouri v. Biden discussing the trial court decision by Judge Doughty will be made on August 10, 2023, at 1:00 PM CT and will be live streamed. We strongly encourage the reader to listen.
