 CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: We'll hear argument

first this morning in Case 13-193, Susan B. Anthony List

v. Steven Driehaus.

 Mr. Carvin?

 ORAL ARGUMENT OF MICHAEL A. CARVIN
 
8
 ON BEHALF OF THE PETITIONERS
 
9
 MR. CARVIN: Mr. Chief Justice, and may it
 
10
 
please the Court:
 
11
 Under this Court's great forward precedent,
 
12
 
this case presents a clearly right and justiciable
 
13
 
controversy. All agree that the test is whether or not
 
14
 
there's a credible threat of enforcement. Here we know
 
15
 
THAT there's a credible threat of enforcement because
 
16
 
the Commission's Probable Cause panel in 2010 said that
 
17
 
the speech at issue probably violated Ohio's false
 
18
 
statement law.
 
19
 Since an enforcement agency has already told
 
20
 
us that this statement probably violates their law, we
 
21
 
obviously face a clear and very credible threat of
 
22
 
enforcement if we repeat those statements as we alleged
 
23
 
we would do.
 
24
 JUSTICE GINSBURG: Are you making that
 
25
 
argument on behalf of the other organization? Susan B.
