The Stevens Decision: Speech 8, Animals 1

i April 20, 2010

To the disappointment of ISAR and many others, the Supreme Court by a vote of 8-1 has just ruled unconstitutional the federal statute criminalizing the creation, possession or sale of depictions of animal cruelty. As our supporters know, ISAR submitted an amicus curiae brief in the Stevens case and our chairman, Professor Henry Mark Holzer, provided two commentaries on the case while it was pending.

Next week, Professor Holzer will analyze the Court’s opinion in a commentary to be posted on ISAR’S website.
