Constitutional Law and Civil Rights Experience 

Tyler's significant cases over the years have implicated a number of important public interest issues:

  • Served as lead counsel for two of thirteen sidewalk counselors during a multi-week preliminary injunction hearing in which then-Attorney General of New York Eric Schneiderman unsuccessfully fought to stop the counselors from exercising their First Amendment rights.  As a part of his efforts, Tyler exposed how a pro-abortion clinic escort had created a fake Facebook page to spy on activities by pro-life individuals on the internet.  


  • ​Part of the legal team that represented the Governor of North Carolina and others in high-profile constitutional litigation that involved claims brought by the U.S. Department of Justice and ACLU to challenge the state statute regulating transgender access to state bathrooms and similar facilities.

  • ​Currently prosecuting long-running federal civil rights lawsuit for pro-life sidewalk counselors who are being targeted on multiple fronts by the City of Charlotte, which is seeking to stop a successful, Gospel-based program that has saved thousands of babies from abortion.

  • Suing the City of Wilmington in North Carolina state court for unconstitutionally restricting the rights of homeowners to use their property for short-term rentals.  


  • Part of the legal team that represented the State of Tennessee, the Tennessee General Assembly, and two of its members in suing to challenge federal policies that violated the Tenth Amendment.


  • ​Won motion that dismissed all claims against his client, a former Congressman and prominent conservative commentator, who was wrongfully sued for defamation.  ​


  • Counsel for several scholars from George Mason University's Mercatus Center in their support of an Institute for Justice challenge to North Carolina's economically-flawed certificate of need laws. ​


  • Assisted the National Center for Life and Liberty and noted attorney David Gibbs III in representing two street preachers suing in federal court to stop harassment by a town government.


  • Authored amicus curiae brief in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals that defended a religious accommodation allowing state court magistrates to opt out of performing marriages.​


  • Filed brief in the North Carolina Court of Appeals arguing that the NAACP lacked standing to challenge the statewide referendum in which voters approved constitutional amendments authorizing voter identification requirements and lowering the state's cap on income taxes. 


  • ​Recently authored amicus curiae brief for the American Family Association and civil rights activist Dr. Alveda C. King in the U.S. Supreme Court urging the Court to overturn a prior opinion that gives governments excessive power to restrict the First Amendment rights of pro-life sidewalk counselors.  


  • ​Part of legal team that authored U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief defending the traditional definition of "sex" under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

  • Represented grassroots organization in filing amicus curiae brief with the U.S. Supreme Court to defend a state program that provides aid to schools, including religious schools.
