Kansas Court Revives Political Nonprofits’ Suit Over Impersonating an Election Official

“The statute simply does not provide clarity that truthful speech which generates an innocent or unreasonable listener mistake is outside of its scope. And this is sufficient to confer pre-enforcement standing,” Justice Caleb Stegall said. “Thus, when the Legislature criminalizes speech and does not—within the elements and definitions of the crime—provide a high degree of specificity and clarity demonstrating that the only speech being criminalized is constitutionally unprotected speech, the law is sufficiently unclear to confer pre-enforcement standing on a plaintiff challenging the law.”
