Alito on free speech

Ronald K.L. Collins and David L. Hudson Jr. at the First Amendment Center take a look at Judge Alito's record of free-speech rulings in a post entitled "Judge Alito fairly strong on free expression":

A preliminary examination of his First Amendment opinions suggests that Alito is: (1) quite protective of several categories of expression, including religious and commercial expression; (2) far less protective of First Amendment claims raised by prisoners; (3) guardedly protective of First Amendment rights in defamation cases, and (4) generally concerned about prior restraints on expression.
