Bank of Hope v. Chon, No. 18-1567 (3d Cir.) September 17, 2019.
The trial court in this embezzlement case erred in failing to articulate why speech suppression was necessary to the fair and orderly proceeding of the case. The Court’s order forbidding defendant from contacting bank shareholders to garner support was entered without the court’s stating its reason for so doing, and failed to consider less restrictive alternatives, all in violation of defendant’s First Amendment rights.
