cr> ACLU v. Reno Progress


Craig A. Johnson


Good news from the ACLU:

    (1) On Monday, 2/26, the Court received and filed the written
    stipulation from the government that they will not initiate
    investigations or begin prosecutions under either the "patently
    offensive" or the "indecency" provisions of the CDA.  This
    applies to the plaintiffs *and*  all Internet users.   (The
    written stipulation is available on the ACLU web site at 

    (2) In addition, on Tuesday, 2/27, the Court formally
    consolidated the second lawsuit challenging the CDA, _ALA v.
    DOJ_, with the _ACLU v. Reno_ case. 

Both of these developments are great news, and are substantive steps
toward re-affirming First Amendment rights on the Net.
