They are available on the US Supreme Court website. I have read the oral arguments and many of the briefs submitted. The “frightening and high” assertion did not come up in oral argument, but the briefs are very well written in support of our cause. The opposition’s briefs are written like an opinion article with multiple omissions and lack of evidence after making claims. Packingham’s response to the last brief by the state was probably one of the best legal responses I have read in years. In oral argument, the state was struggling with questions from the judges and one answer given when asked if this could apply to other criminal classes amounted to “but.. but… these are SEX offenders!” (paraphrased) I have no doubt the court will rule for Packingham.
