Cases in Communication Law
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Aug 16, 2011 - Law - 374 pages
Of the sixty-four cases in the third edition of Paul Siegel’s popular Cases in Communication Law, nineteen are new to this edition. Included among these are Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, in which the Supreme Court revamped the system of campaign financing; U.S. v. Stevens, in which the Court refused to permit punishment for films depicting animal cruelty; and Presley v. Georgia, where the Court tells us for the first time that the defendant’s right to a public trial are sufficient to open up the jury selection to the press and public.
Forty of the cases presented here are U.S. Supreme Court cases, fifteen are federal appellate decisions, and seven were decided at the federal district court level. The book also includes two state supreme court cases.
