NLC Webinar: SCOTUS Decision on Social Media

On March 15th, in Lindke v. Freed, the Supreme Court established the test for when local government officials are considered "state actors" for the purposes of the First Amendment when they post on social media.  The case is a win for local governments, as the test provided by the Supreme Court safeguards the free speech rights of elected officials while balancing the rights of their citizens. 

The National League of Cities (NLC) has created two resources to help local governments navigate this in practical terms:

  • blog that was posted on March 22nd
  • An upcoming webinar on April 22nd at 2:00pm to review the case with legal experts. A portion of the webinar will be reserved for Q&A. The webinar will be recorded, and you must register to receive the recording via email afterwards.
