Express Oil Change, L.L.C. v. Mississippi Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Surveyors, 18-60144

Held that the First Amendment's commercial speech protections entitled a company to operate automotive service centers under the name "Tire Engineers," even though a state board that licenses engineers objected to the use of the profession's occupational title. Reversed and rendered summary judgment in favor of the company, in this declaratory judgment action.
