Ohio Federal Judge Strikes Down Net-Censorship Law

An Ohio federal judge on Monday struck down Ohio's combined "harmful to minors" law on the grounds that it ran afoul of the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of speech. Fortunately, U.S. District Judge Walker Herbert Rice said the definition of "harmful to juveniles" does not by itself violate the First Amendment. But he ruled that, in practice, applying that definition to the Internet is overly broad.
