Pamela Geller sues NYC Mayor de Blasio.

May 7, 2020:

Today we have filed suit against NYC Mayor de Blasio.

Complaint-Filed

This case seeks to protect and vindicate fundamental liberties that citizens of the United States enjoy free from government interference. These liberties are not conferred or granted by government to then be rescinded at the will and whims of government officials. These God-given liberties are possessed by the people, and they are guaranteed against government interference by the United States Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land. First among these liberties is the right to peacefully protest government officials through the freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble guaranteed by the First Amendment. 2.The right to freedom of speech is not a right to catharsis. It is a right to meaningfully protest and assemble in public in order to change public policy. The most effective way to exercise this right is to organize and participate in a large public protest. Defendants, through the adoption and enforcement of executive edicts, have suspended this fundamental right in the City of New York.

John Adams warned that “Liberty once lost is lost forever.” All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. Through this Complaint, PlaintiffGeller challenges Defendants’ suspension of the First Amendment.

It is a civil rights action brought under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and 42 U.S.C. § 1983, challenging Defendants’ restriction on Plaintiff’s right to engage in peaceful protests and protected speech in public forums in the City of New York (hereinafter “First Amendment Restriction”).5.Plaintiff seeks a declaration that Defendants violated her clearly established constitutional rights as set forth in this Complaint; a declaration that Defendants’ First AmendmentRestriction violates the United States Constitution and 42 U.S.C. § 1983 as set forth in this Complaint; a preliminary and permanent injunction enjoining the enforcement of Defendants’ First Amendment Restriction as set forth in this Complaint; and nominal damages for the past loss of Plaintiff’s constitutional rights. Plaintiff also seeks an award of reasonable costs of litigation, including attorneys’ fees and expenses, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1988 and other applicable law.
