Mehanna v. United States

Petition for certiorari denied on October 6, 2014
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-1125 1st Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2014

Issue: Whether a citizen’s political and religious speech may constitute provision of “material support or resources” to a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) under the “coordination” rubric of Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, when the government conceded that petitioner was not instructed by the FTO, and the evidence showed that he did not interact with the FTO, but rather viewed, translated, and disseminated materials of his own choosing, while expressing moral support for certain views of the FTO, and associating on the Internet with persons who the government claims had themselves associated with the FTO.
