|19-177||2d Cir.||May 5, 2020||Jun 29, 2020||5-3||Kavanaugh||OT 2019|
Holding: Because the foreign affiliates of American NGOs possess no First Amendment rights, the requirement for funding under the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act that organizations have “a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking,” as applied those foreign affiliates, does not violate the Constitution.
Judgment: Reversed, 5-3, in an opinion by Justice Kavanaugh on June 29, 2020. Justice Thomas filed a concurring opinion. Justice Breyer filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor joined. Justice Kagan took no part in the consideration or decision of this case.
