Federal Government Argues that Ban on False Claims of Having Gotten a Military Medal Is “Content-Neutral”

A pretty poor argument (see p. 6), it seems to me — the law applies to speech of a certain content, and is justified by a worry that the content of the speech will mislead people.

I’ve argued that the ban is constitutionally permissible, because it fits within the knowingly-false-statements-of-fact exception to First Amendment protection. But it is definitely not content-neutral.
