Free Speech Coal. v. Att’y Gen. United States

In Free Speech Coal. v. Att’y Gen. United States, the 3rd Circuit held that a law, which required producers of pornography to verify the age and identity of each person portrayed, to keep records of the age verification, and to label each depiction with the location where law enforcement may obtain those records, violated the First Amendment as applied to the plaintiffs, who were required to comply with the law even for performers, who were at least thirty years old. The law’s requirements were not the least restrictive ways to protect children.
