The Office of the President and other White House officials are defendants in a free speech lawsuit filed by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) and the Coalition for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE).

According to the groups, the White House has “unlawfully collected information on political speech,” thereby illegally using the power of the White House to chill opposition to its plans for health care reform. The lawsuit was prompted by the White House solicitation for the public to report any “fishy” comments to ‘flag@whitehouse.gov.’

Although the White House has slightly revised its data collection procedure, the email address still exists, the illegal activity continues, and, say the litigants, it is part of an “unlawful pattern and practice to collect and maintain information” on the exercise of free speech.
