Blair Imani, et al. v. City of Baton Rouge, et al.
The Law Office of William Most represents thirteen peaceful protesters and two journalists arrested during the 2016 Alton Sterling protests in Baton Rouge.
Many of them had followed police orders and were standing on private property when law enforcement told them “where you are standing isn’t good enough.” The protesters and journalists were arrested, abused, and imprisoned - in violation of their First Amendment rights.

Suzanne-Juliette Mobley, et al. v. Facebook, Inc.
In 2016, Pro Publica broke the story that Facebook was allowing advertisers to exclude Black, Hispanic, and other “ethnic affinities” from seeing ads. The Law Office of William Most filed a lawsuit to hold Facebook accountable for its violations of the Civil Rights Act, the Fair Housing Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and California law. In March 2019, the case settled, achieving sweeping changes. According to the New York Times:
The changes to Facebook's advertising methods —which generate most of the company's enormous profits — are unprecedented. The social network says it will no longer allow housing, employment or credit ads that target people by age, gender or zip code. Facebook will also limit other targeting options so these ads don't exclude people on the basis of race, ethnicity and other legally protected categories in the U.S., including national origin and sexual orientation.
