Honk For Your First Amendment Rights
Listen now
Is honking your car horn to support a group of protesters a form of free speech, or is it a traffic violation? The Ninth Circuit decided it was the latter after a California woman who was ticketed for excessive honking sued on First Amendment grounds. Buckle your seatbelts as we talk through the appellate court’s ruling on this week’s Pro Say. Also this week, Tesla gets pulled into court by a proposed class of drivers who say they were surreptitiously recorded by their vehicles, and that Tesla employees shared those videos as gossip fodder in internal messages. Next we head into the vaping litigation space, where e-cigarette giant Juul agreed to pay $462 million to settle allegations that it marketed its products to minors. And finally, a former Motley Crue guitarist kickstarts a lawsuit against his former bandmates saying he was unfairly ousted.
