Ninth Circuit upheld restrictions on legal aid groups

On November 23, 2009, a three-judge panel for the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled 2-1 that congressional restrictions on organizations receiving federal grants through the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) do not violate the First Amendment of the US Constitution. The court found that limiting these legal aid groups' activities with respect to lobbying, client solicitation, participation in class actions and attorneys' fees was constitutional.
