Interview with Jonathan Emord (July 15, 2010)
Jonathan W. Emord is one of the nation’s leading free speech attorneys. He has defeated the Food and Drug Administration a remarkable six times in federal court, more times than any other attorney in American history.
New York radio talk show host Bernard Owens calls Emord “the FDA Dragonslayer.”
The Cancer Control Society calls him “the Freedom Man” who has helped “win and preserve our great civil rights to life, to liberty, and to health freedoms.”
Emory University Professor of Law and Economics Joanna M. Shepherd salutes Emord’s “tremendous experience in litigating against regulatory agencies” and his “unique insights” on defending free speech rights.
Congressman Ron Paul says “[a]ll freedom-loving Americans are in debt to Jonathan Emord for his courtroom [victories]” and calls him “a hero of the health freedom revolution.”
Formerly an attorney in the Reagan Administration’s Federal Communications Commission, Emord has practiced constitutional and administrative law in Washington, D.C. for the past twenty-five years. He is routinely consulted by industry, Congress, and the media on regulatory issues that affect liberty and property.
He is the author of four critically acclaimed books: Freedom, Technology and the First Amendment (1991); The Ultimate Price (2007); The Rise of Tyranny (2008); and Global Censorship of Health Information (2010).
