Stolen Valor

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal regarding the constitutionality of the Stolen Valor Act, which makes it a crime to falsely claim military service or awards.  The 9th Cir. had stuck down the act as a violation of the First Amendment freedom of speech.  I’ve had an interest in first amendment law ever since law school.  I’ve though that that the 9th Cir. decision was somewhat suspect.  I’ll be interested in what the Supreme Court does with the case.

Prof. Eugene Volokh has a good analysis of the issues here.
