In 1988, the Supreme Court announced its decision in Hustler Magazine v. Falwell. The court ruled unanimously for Hustler, which had published a parody of religious leader Jerry Falwell, who had sued to recover damages for libel, invasion of privacy, and emotional distress. This discussion of the landmark case focused on its significance and impact on editorial cartoonists and other First Amendment cases. This event was part of a symposium on satire held at the University of Minnesota. close
