INTRODUCTION

  1. This is an action for emergency declaratory and injunctive relief against Defendants arising
    out of their unconstitutional Censure and retaliatory silencing of Representative Zooey Zephyr, a
    member of the Montana House of Representatives who engaged in Constitutionally protected
    speech.
  2. Montana voters elect their Representatives to fully engage with the democratic process at
    the State Capitol. Voters elect their Representatives to do more than simply vote on bills.
    Representatives also are elected to use of the floor of the House to pursue their constituents’
    interests and views—using the platform provided by the People’s House to educate and persuade
    their colleagues and the public through speech, debate, and lobbying. In addition, the testimony
    from elected Representatives is critical in creating the legislative history of enacted statutes, which
    in turn informs the interpretation of those statutes
