Datebook: June 7 – Supreme Court sets precedent for vulgar writing 40 years ago

leave a comment »

On June 7, 1971, the US Supreme Court overturned the conviction of Paul Cohen, setting a precedent for protecting vulgar writing under the First Amendment of the Constitution.  Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 was a United States Supreme Court case dealing with freedom of speech. The Court overturned a disturbing the peace conviction of a man wearing a jacket decorated with profanity.

It’s Tuesday, June 7
