Animal Cruelty, Crush Videos and U.S. v. Stevens (Video)
I spoke about animal cruelty, crush videos and the Supreme Court‘s First Amendment decision in U.S. v. Stevens, 130 S. Ct. 1577 (2010), on October 21, 2010, at the Chicago Bar Association. I was asked to do so by the CBA’s Animal Law Committee.
My videotaped presentation, which I am pleased to make available to readers of this blog, lasts about forty minutes. It is followed by twenty minutes of discussion, also videotaped.
The first part of my presentation deals with the Free Exercise Clause, the second part with obscenity and child pornography under the Free Speech Clause, the third part with the Stevens decision itself and the last part with crush video legislation pending in Congress.
I hope you find it both interesting and informative.
