United States Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Inc.

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-177 2d Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD OT 2019

Issue: Whether - when in Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International Inc., the Supreme Court held that the First Amendment bars enforcement of Congress’ directive, which required respondents, United States-based organizations that receive federal funds to fight HIV/AIDS abroad, to “have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking” as a condition of accepting those funds - the First Amendment further bars enforcement of that directive with respect to legally distinct foreign entities operating overseas that are affiliated with respondents.
