The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently issued a decision that got people talking about the truth-seeking process in the law. For those who took notice, many asked incredulously, was our government actually trying to regulate false expression, in the form of lies? Do we have a truth police state in America? Now, we’re not talking about the 9th Circuit case holding that tattoos are expressions protected by the First Amendment, nor are we referring to the 9th Circuit’s en banc ruling permitting the government to invoke the state secrets privilege to end a lawsuit against the Bush administration’s alleged torture program. Governmental regulation of the truth is an existential undercurrent in many cases, even for non-conspiracy theorists, and the 9th Circuit had a busy summer.
