WASHINGTON, May 15 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Concerned Women for America (CWA) is pleased but not surprised that the U.S. Supreme Court denied review of a challenge to the federal obscenity laws in Extreme Associates v. United States. The denial of certiorari means the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upholding the constitutionality of the federal obscenity laws as applied to Extreme Associates will stand and the case will proceed to trial.
“By calling it ‘Extreme,’ they aren’t product-puffing,” said Jan LaRue, CWA’s Chief Counsel. “This is some of the most vile and disgusting porn available anywhere. Thankfully, the courts have rejected this ridiculous challenge to the federal law.
“Like most who are charged with violating obscenity laws, the owners will probably accept a negotiated plea bargain rather than face conviction by a jury and sentencing by a judge. The fact that this garbage is accessible to kids makes the offense all the more egregious,” LaRue concluded.
Concerned Women for America (CWA) is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.
