IRA GLASSER/EXEC. DIR. AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION: THE DECISION WAS A VICTORY AS BIG AND AS TOTAL AND AS COMPLETE AS IT WAS POSSIBLE TO HAVE
The A.C.L.U. was one of several plaintiffs who brought the case to court.
They charged that the new Communications Decency Act signed into law by President Clinton last February was unconstitutional because it banned transmission of "so called" indecent material. A move they say amounted to censorship. The judge's ruling protects the internet in the same way print is already protected:
IRA GLASSER/EXEC. DIR. AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION: IT SETS THE STANDARDS FOR THE HOW THE FIRST AMENDMENT WILL APPLY TO WHAT MAY BE THE MAJOR MEDIUM OF THE 21ST CENTURY.

ONE OF THE PLAINTIFF'S IN THE CASE, A GROUP WORKING TO END PRISONER RAPE SAID CENSORING THE INTERNET WOULD HAVE PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS.
