The Kansas City Star seeks Greim’s input for ACLU story
The Kansas City Star recently reached out to Graves Garrett Partner Edward Greim for comment on an article about the American Civil Liberties Union.
The article, titled “ACLU Chapters in Missouri and Kansas Find New Energy to Deal with Controversies,” discusses the ACLU’s recent redistricting and its “new and aggressive effort to place the group in the center of highly public controversies in Missouri and Kansas.”
According to the article, critics believe the ACLU “has strayed from its initial mission protecting the Bill of Rights to promote a broader liberal agenda involving abortion rights, immigrants, even legal marijuana.”
“The ACLU grates on a lot of people because they claim to be neutral when, in fact, they’re not,” Greim said. “They’re choosing a side.”
With a focus on free speech and election law, Greim has a plethora of experience in civil liberties cases and has been featured previously in The Kansas City Star. Most recently, he was a source for the newspaper’s article on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby, a case in which Hobby Lobby claimed that due to religious beliefs it should not have to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s provision that requires employers to provide insurance coverage for emergency contraceptives.
