Court Rules Against FCC Over Library Filters and Funding

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 2, 2003

Via Declan McCullagh’s Wired article, this link to documents in American Library Association Inc. v. U.S., Civil Actions 2001-1303 and 2001-1322, Three-Judge Court Internet Case, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania (note the Memorandum and Order is 195 pages.) “The court permanently barred the Federal Communications Commission from cutting off funds to libraries that don’t filter. Under the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), libraries only had until July 1 to pledge to filter if they wanted federal funds — a date that handed the three-judge panel an unusually short deadline.”
