Advocate Curtis Published in Daily Caller on Libel Litigation

Advocate Curtis Tate was published in The Daily Caller on Yelp’s challenge to a recent ruling requiring it to reveal the identities of reviewers accused of libel.

A denial of Yelp’s appeal would protect the current legal process that lends itself to free speech and its ramifications. Preventing malicious lies while requiring businesses to prove that they have been damaged beyond a reasonable doubt is the only equitable way forward. Other solutions simply favor one party at the cost of another. A country serious about the protection of freedoms must be serious about their responsibilities as well.

Advocate Matthew Published in PanAm Post on Immigration Reform

Advocate Matthew La Corte was published in The PanAmerican Post on Gov. Jeb Bush’s comments on immigration and the Republican Party’s hesitance to embrace reform.

The rule of law implies legal processes and procedures. It supports the commonly used aphorism that no one is above the law. This means there are predictable outcomes for legal infractions and an equal application of punishment consistent with the legal tradition of a given state. Unfortunately, US immigration law today poorly resembles this image of equal jurisprudence.

The US immigration bureaucracy is extremely complex. The regulatory web includes detention centers with arbitrary sentences and immigration officers without clear instructions on dealing with situations. Over 33,000 noncitizens are in jail each day and are held for an indefinite amount of time. When they finally do go to court, each immigrant’s case is decided in an average of seven minutes, due to an overcrowded legal system.

Advocate Matthew Quoted in Rare on Millennials

Advocate Matthew La Corte was quoted in Rare on Millennials’ attitudes towards the two major political parities in the United States.

Student’s For Liberty’s Matthew La Corte commented that “Millennial libertarianism is a dynamic, international, cultural, and intellectual cause with the ultimate goal as the reduction of the role of politics in human affairs.”

“Sure it’s a political philosophy but it’s also a mindset and lifestyle. Libertarianism is not found in a book. It’s not reflected somewhere in a chart. Libertarianism is the product of millions of individual experiences which show that liberty works.”
