Petition for certiorari denied on December 9, 2019
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-439 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issues: (1) Whether reduced scrutiny of compelled commercial speech under Zauderer v. Office of Disciplinary Counsel of Supreme Court of Ohio applies beyond the need to prevent consumer deception; and (2) whether, when Zauderer applies, it is sufficient that the compelled speech be (a) factually accurate – even if controversial and, when read as a whole, potentially misleading; and (b) merely reasonably related to any non-“trivial” governmental interest.
