AAF Files Amicus Brief Defending Freedom of Association

January 16th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom filed an amicus brief with 34 other groups in defense of insurance companies’ freedom of association which was trampled on by New York’s Department of Financial Services when they investigated insurance programs offered by the NRA through insurance companies, and called on the companies to discontinue their arrangements with the NRA.

“No government or government official should have the power to deprive a lawful organization of a full range of financial services without facing constitutional review,” said J. Marc Wheat, AAF General Counsel. “New York’s actions in this case stand in violation of the first amendment and should be scrutinized. No government’s actions are above the rule of law.”
