Prior Restraint. This is one of the main reasons the framers developed the first amendment of the constitution. Prior Restraint was very prevalent in the British Monarchy. When the framers established the constitution, they discussed many oppositions to British Law (one of which was prior restraint on expression). The only exception the framers eluded to was Seditious Libel (which they attempted to replicate [Alien and Seditions Act]. But it didnt pass)

Prior restrain or prior restraint is a government action or censorship imposed by a government. It prohibits an expression such as speech before it can happen.
A prior restraint is a form of coercion used before an event or action to prevent it from happening. A post restraint is a form of punishment after an act occurs. First amendment cases, particularly with regard to freedom of the press, often talk about prior and posts restraints. If the government censored a newspaper by prohibiting it from publishing an article, that would be an example of prior restraint. In almost all cases, that is ruled unconstitutional. On the other hand, if the government imprisoned a journalist for publishing classified information in the paper, that would be an example of post restraint.
