Supreme Court ruled unanimously written by Judge
William Rehnquist concerning Hustler Magazine v Jerry Falwell
"At the heart of the First Amendment is the
recognition of the fundamental importance of the free flow of ideas and
opinions on matters of public interest and concern. The freedom to speak
one's mind is not only an aspect of individual liberty – and thus a good
unto itself – but also is essential to the common quest for truth and the
vitality of society as a whole."
Supreme Court Judge Scalia wrote concerning Pope v
"Just as there is no use arguing about taste, there
is no use litigating about it."
