August 3, 2015 -- Professor Eugene Volokh commented on state recording law in a U.S. News & World Report article on a lawsuit to block the release of footage filed against a group dedicated to exposing what it views as illicit transactions of human fetus parts by abortion providers.
Eugene Volokh, a free speech expert and UCLA law professor, wrote a lengthy analysis on his popular legal blog about the StemExpress case. He’s not sure if the company – or the National Abortion Federation – will prevail on claims about the state recording law, which allows some wiggle room.
But Volokh tells U.S. News the National Abortion Federation’s allegations, if true, may doom efforts to distribute footage from its conference.
“If the facts are as alleged, they have a pretty strong case,” he says.
