Stolen Valor Act Discussion
In its Community forum, SCOTUSblog is hosting a discussion on the Stolen Valor Act, which criminalizes false statements regarding receipt of military decorations, medals, and awards. The Supreme Court will dicsuss the cert. petition in United States v. Alvarez, which invalidated the Act on First Amendment grounds, at tomorrow’s conference. I’ve posted a comment on the issues raised in Alvarez in the discussion thread.
