Professor Volokh Cited in Santa Maria Sun Article on Free Speech Case Regarding Rap Song

November 12, 2015 -- Professor Eugene Volokh was cited in a Santa Maria Sun article about a free speech case in which a rapper faces charges of threatening a witness in one of his songs.

According to the Santa Maria Sun, Volokh said the threat needs to be relatively specific, adding that using first and last names in the song doesn’t help Murillo’s case. Volokh believes the court of appeals made a “pretty good argument,” but by no means is the case open and shut.
