    Post: Freedom to Petition Government for Redress of Grievances

    Posted by Hardy Parkerson, Atty. on 11/05/06


    Dear Counsel.Net Friends,

    I am doing a study of what right the First Amendment
    gives us as citizens under the "redress of grivenances"
    clause of the First Amendment. What are its
    possibilities? What are its l imitation? I do know that
    from time to time some federal courts enjoin prisoners
    from filing law suits. Doesn't the First Amendment
    guarantee them the right to "petition the Government for
    redress of grievances?" And let's say we have the right
    to petition the government for redress of grievances, what
    obligation may or may not the government have to act in
    response to the this First Amendmnent petition?

    If you know of any scholarly or other treatment of this
    particular area of constitutional law, I would appreciate
    your posting the source and citation of such case, writing
    and/or other treatment of this First Amendment freedom.

    Sincerely,

    Hardy Parkerson, Atty.
