The California Supreme Court Historical Society will present “Free Speech and the Internet.” Society board member Mitchell Keiter will discuss the California Supreme Court’s decision in Robins v. Pruneyard Shopping Center (1979) 23 Cal.3d 899, 910, aff’d (1980) 447 U.S. 74, which held that the California Constitution “protect[s] speech and petitioning, reasonably exercised, in shopping centers even when the centers are privately owned.” (Id. at p. 910.) (I’m also on the Society’s board.)

Besides the history of Robins, the May 29 noon webinar will address how the case’s holding might apply to social media and the NetChoice cases pending before the U.S. Supreme Court (see here and here).

MCLE credit is available. The program is free to all, except there’s a $25 fee for non-Society members who want MCLE credit.

Registration for the program is here.
