A federal judge has ruled that a Virginia law intended to restrict Internet material considered harmful to children is unconstitutional.
The ruling prevents the state from enforcing a 19-99 law subjecting Web site operators to criminal prosecution if they knowingly allow minors access to sexually explicit material on their sites.
