Is there a U.S. Civil Statute regarding the right to protest, or the right of free speech?
Bardstown, KY |
If filing in Federal Court one must fill out a Civil Cover Sheet. It requires that the U.S. Civil Statute under which one is filing be cited. Is there a U.S. Civil Statute covering the right to protest and/or the right of free speech?
Federal courts require a specific grant of jurisdiction and you must elect either federal quation jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1331 or diversity jurisdiction defined under 28 U.S.C. § 1332.
Save yourself a great deal of trouble and read both of these before filling out forms.
