IMS v. Ayotte, A.G., State of NH

Brief of Kelly A. Ayotte, Attorney General of New Hampshire


New Hampshire Files Brief in First Circuit Appeal of Ayotte.

New Hampshire has filed its brief in the First Circuit Court of Appeals seeking reversal of the federal district court's decision striking down the state Prescription Confidentiality Act. New Hampshire said that the district court erred in finding that the Act violated the First Amendment. "The Act’s restriction on the use of prescriber-identifiable prescription data for commercial purposes is a regulation of non-expressive conduct, which does not abridge freedom of speech under the First Amendment," New Hampshire said. (August 14, 2007)

This is the Attorney General Ayotte's Appellate Brief.
