Two groups are filing a suit against the Executive Office of the President, among other parties, over its “Flag” e-mail campaign that asked people to forward “fishy” e-mails.

The suit alleges that the campaign was part of an effort to chill free speech. It has been filed by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and the Coalition for Urban Renewal and Education.

I don’t expect the suit to get far, but it is an interesting legal tactic.
