This just in from the ACLU on ACLU et. al. v. Reno.

Subject:       To all Plaintiffs

Last night by fax we received the government's answer brief.  We will
not be making electronic copies available.  In summary, their brief
contains 65 pages of legal argument with approximately 500 pages of
exhibits.  The government's brief makes all the expected arguments
about protecting children and the need to eliminate pornography in
cyberspace.  They also depend on the Rimm Study (yes, we are aware of
its flaws) for some of their argument.  The voluminous exhibits mostly
contain the legislative history of the Communications Decency Act.

If you would like a copy of the government's brief, please let me know
and we will send you one via regular mail.  If you have already
requested a copy, we have already put one in the mail.

The three judge panel that will hear our motion for an injunction are
Ronald Buckwalter, Stuart Dalzell and Delores K. Sloviter.  We expect
to have a hearing on the case within the next two weeks.

We will continue to keep you up to date on any recent developments.
