WATCH: Huge Court Win for Project Veritas

Image result for Project Veritas

A huge court victory for Project Veritas. A federal appeals court in Massachusetts has ruled that it is not illegal for Americans to secretly record their public officials, including police while they are performing their duties as government employees.

According to U.S. District Chief Judge Patti B. Staris a Massachusetts law banning so-called “one-person” recordings – where only the person doing the recording knows the recording is being made – violates First Amendment rights of news-gathering organizations when it comes to government employees performing their government duties.

According to this evening’s Washington Times, Judge Staris: “… ruled in favor of two sets of plaintiffs, one of which regularly livestreamed video of police officers performing their duties, and the other James O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas specializes in catching public polcy figures saying embarrassing things.” O’Keefe called the ruling groundbreaking. “The impact of this win will ripple throughout the nation. It will set historical precedent and keep citizen journalism alive in all fifty states.”
