Fighting Disinformation in Court

Public debate is being short-circuited by individuals and entities that repeatedly spread lies. Law for Truth, a project of Protect Democracy, works to stop those who intentionally or recklessly spread false information that undermines our democracy. Through strategic litigation and public education, we protect that democracy — along with individuals and entities victimized by disinformation — against those who intentionally or recklessly defame for financial, partisan, or other reasons. Read more about our work to combat specific lies undermining our democracy below.
