The Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF) to challenge the federal SORNA regulations that became effective in January 2022. As a signatory to the MOU, ACSOL has agreed to serve as a named plaintiff in the lawsuit which will be filed in the Central district of California, a federal trial court. The remaining plaintiff is a registrant who resides in California and will be known as “John Doe.”
The lawsuit will include a request for preliminary injunction which, if granted by the court, would stop enforcement of the SORNA regulations. The lawsuit will also request a final judgment declaring the SORNA regulations to be invalid. PLF will lead the litigation and will pay all legal fees as well as all related expenses.
