Supreme Court Landmark Case Schenck v. United States Beverly Gage and Thomas Goldstein talked about the 1919 U.S. Supreme Court case Schenck v. United States, in which the court unanimously ruled that the Espionage Act of 1917 was constitutional, even when used to punish speech that would be permissible in times of peace. It created the “clear and present danger” standard, establishing that the First Amendment was not absolute. The guests also responded to viewer questions and comments. Video clips were shown from tours of the Woodrow Wilson House in Washington, D.C.; the National Archives at Philadelphia; Harvard Law Library in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and an interview with Jeffrey Rosen. A video clip was shown of an April 17, 2014, discussion by Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Marvin Kalb. close
