(Alexandria, VA) – October 25, 2022: In September, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed an amicus curiae brief in Paul A. Ekenes-Tucker, et al v. Kay Ivey, et al al. urging the court to quash the Department of Justice (DOJ) subpoena on the Eagle Forum of Alabama, a conservative nonprofit organization. The subpoena, which seeks voluminous internal documents and communications from the organization, served to intimidate and chill political activity that is contrary to the government’s position.
