Free speech court decisionThe Communications Decency Act was declared unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court and its enforcement enjoined in ACLU v Reno. First a three judge federal court in Philadelphia declared the law VOID as a violation of the controlling law of the land - the Constitution. In so doing they saved the Internet and our rights to free communications from the excesses of Congress in an election year, 1994. I have selected some of the best quotes from the lengthy trial court decision. Next, the Supreme Court of the United States continued its 200 year tradition of upholding the Constitution, in spite of all of the political heat from Congress and the President, and affirmed the trial court's decision. The entire text of the Supreme Court decision is well worth reading. It is the first decision of the Supreme Court on the Internet and will effect your rights on the Internet for decades to come.
