A new group has formed to take “free speech” lawfare to campuses

Updated: Mar 15, 2020

Speech First

Politico reports that the group, Speech First, “alleges in a federal lawsuit that the University of Michigan's rules meant to prohibit harassment and bullying are actually infringing on free speech rights.” (24 May 2018).



Working with “Speech First” is a law firm with an interesting history. 

Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC

  • This is a law firm that has sued both Harvard and the University of North Carolina over their admissions policies.

  • This is the same law firm that is representing “President Donald Trump in a Maryland federal lawsuit alleging his undivested business interests violate the U.S. Constitution, specifically emoluments clauses that bar gifts or payments from foreign powers.”

Who is Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC? Who is paying Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC to help the Speech First group? Who paid them to go after Harvard and UNC?
