The Supreme Court has agreed to review the constitutionality of the Stolen Valor Act. The Stolen Valor Act makes lying about having military honors a federal crime. It’s at 18 U.S.C. § 704.
There’s a good discussion of the Act over at SCOTUSBlog.
The Wall Street Journal Law Blog nicely frames the issue – “What’s More Common Than Valor?”
And, of course, there’s prior coverage of the Act on this blog, including Chief Judge Kozinski’s most awesome paragraph in any reported opinion.
