United States Supreme Court

383 U.S. 502

Edward MISHKIN, Appellant,  v.  STATE OF NEW YORK.

 Argued: Dec. 7, 1965. --- Decided: March 21, 1966


Mr. Justice STEWART, dissenting.

The appellant was sentenced to three years in prison for publishing numerous books. However tawdry those books may be, they are not hard-core pornography, and their publication is, therefore, protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments. Ginzburg v. United States, 383 U.S. 497, 86 S.Ct. 956 (dissenting opinion). The judgment should be reversed. [*]
