Research the case of Curley v. the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) that was filed in US District Court for Massachusetts in 2000 by the parents of a young child who was murdered by two sexual offenders. Ultimately, the Court dismissed this suit based on another issue aside from the speech concern, which is what I’d like you to focus on. To do this, you must reference the case of Brandenburg v. Ohio and learn the facts of that situation.

After referencing both cases and NAMBLA, please answer the following questions.

(1) Summarize the Brandenburg v. Ohio case. Ensure you discuss what led to the case and which side ultimately prevailed. Also ensure you specifically discuss the “two-prong” test that the court used to assess the speech at issue.

(2) Summarize the Curley v. NAMBLA case. Ensure you discuss what led to the case and which side ultimately prevailed.

(3) Evaluate given the material you have, as well as whatever else you research about NAMBLA, whether their speech should have been protected or not. In your discussion, apply the same two-prong test used by the court previously.

(4) Discuss whether the “two-prong” test remains a viable approach for assessing speech in the current time. If you believe it is an adequate standard, ensure you justify your thoughts. If you do not, ensure you propose a different standard.
