Litigation Project Detail

Protecting America's Freedom: National Security and Defense
Since its founding almost 30 years ago, WLF has been the leading public interest advocate in the courts for strong national security and defense, as well as for vigorous enforcement of our criminal laws. WLF has been in the forefront in litigating scores of precedent-setting court cases, opposing activist groups that have used the courts to attack the President, the Department of Defense, and law enforcement agencies -- including the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
