12. Motion Pictures

12.2. Kingsley Intl. Pictures Corp. v. N. Y. Bd. of Regents. (U.S.S.C., #394.) (360 U.S. 684.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 1. June 29: U.S.S.C. unanimously reversed NY ban on "Lady Chatterley's Lover," per Stewart, J.: "What New York has done, therefore, is to prevent the exhibition of a motion picture because that picture advocates an idea — that adultery under certain circumstances may be proper behavior. Yet the First Amendment's basic guarantee is of freedom to advocate ideas. The State, . . . has thus struck at the very heart of constitutionally protected liberties." Black, J., (who did not view the movie with the other Justices), concurring: ". . . Prior censorship of moving pictures like prior censorship of newspapers and books violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments. If despite the Constitution, however, this Nation is to embark on the dangerous road of censorship, my belief is that this Court is about the most inappropriate Supreme Bd. of Censors that could be found."

(5-4) reversed, held Def.-Appellant's plea of absolute privilege must be sustained, in balancing need for fearless executive performance against interest of individual in having redress for defamation.

204.1. N.A.A.C.P. v. Alabama. (U.S.S.C., #753.) (109 So. 2d 138, 360 U.S. 240.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 5, 43, 70. June 8: U.S.S.C., per curiam, reversed Ala. S. Ct., held State could not now deny that only issue in case was whether N.A.A.C.P. could be required to disclose its membership lists, could not now claim U.S.S.C. had been "mistaken" (in 357 U.S. 449) in considering organization had complied or tendered satisfactory compliance with Ala. cir. ct. order, except for production of membership lists.

"We assume that the State Supreme Court, thus advised, will not fail to proceed promptly with the disposition of the matters left open under our mandate for further proceedings, 357 U.S., at 466-7 . . . "

Ct. footnote: had State denied N.A.A.C.P. claim of compliance with production order, serious constitutional issues would have been raised because of state law foreclosing N.A.A.C.P. from obtaining hearing on merits of ouster order.

204.1a. Alabama v. Michell and Patton. (Ala. Cir. Ct., Montgomery.)*
204.3. N.A.A.C.P. v. Williams, Ga. Revenue Commr. (U.S.S.C., #783.) (98 Ga. App. 78, 104 SE 2d 293, 359 U.S. 550.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 5, 43, 70. U.S.S.C., per curiam, held: Ga. represented to U.S.S.C. that "no fine against petr. has been finally determined and assessed"; Ct. Therefore denied cert. Douglas, J., concurring "with some doubts" that judgment is not final; since order to produce records and citation for contempt followed each other in matter of few hours, basic question is whether holding Petr. in contempt and imposing fine comported with due process.
204.4. Harrison v. N.A.A.C.P., Va. Conference, and N.A.A.C.P. Legal Defense and Educ. Fund, Inc. (U.S.S.C., #127.) (360 U.S. 167.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 5-6. June 8: U.S.S.C. reversed 3-judge ct. (6-3), Harlan, J. for majority: unable to agree that 3 Va. statutes reveal no reasonable room for construction by Va. cts. which might avoid in whole or in part necessity for fedl. constitutional adjudication. Douglas, J., dissenting, with Warren, C.J. and Brennan, J.: Congress intended fedl. cts. to assume jurisdiction in cases re civil rights, (see Civil Rights Acts): "Where state laws make such an assault as these do on our decisions and a State has spoken definitely against the constitutional rights of the citizens, reasons for showing deference to local institutions vanish. The conflict is plain and apparent; and the fedl. cts. stand as the one authoritative body for enforcing the constitutional rights of the citizens".

204.11. Arkansas State Conference of Branches, N.A.A.C.P. v. Bennett, et al. (U.S.S.C., #757.) For facts, see DOCKET 6, 70. U.S.S.C., per curiam, held fedl. ct. should not "automatically" refer to state ct. question of validity of state statute when challenged on constitutional grounds; vacated and remanded to DC, citing Harrison, 204.4. Douglas, J., for Warren, C.J. and Brennan, J.: case should be remanded, but DC should be directed to pass on constitutional issues without prior reference to state cts.
204.12. North Little Rock v. Fair. (Cir. Ct., Pulaski Co.)*
204.13. Shelton v. Arkansas. (DC Ark.) Pl.-Negro school teacher in Little Rock sued to test validity of 1959 Ark. laws prohibiting hiring members of N.A.A.C.P. by any state, co., city or school agency; and requiring public school teachers to sign affidavits listing all organizations they belong to or contribute to. June 8: 3-judge fedl. ct. held law prohibiting hiring unconstitutional under 14th Amendment; held listing law constitutional because does not make past or present membership in organization basis for firing.

210. Compulsory Registration
211. 1950 Internal Security Act

211.1. Communist Party of the U. S. v. Subversive Activities Control Bd. (CA DC.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 7, 71. Jy. 30: CA DC (2-1) held "preponderance of all evidence supports" S.A.C.B. order that Communist Party register as "subversive organization" dominated by Soviet Union, under 1950 Internal Security Act. Bazelon, J., dissenting, would remand case to S.A.C.B. for more hearings because: 1) S.A.C.B. had violated CA DC's 1954 opinion by still relying on finding that Ct. had ordered stricken; 2) by fault of Gov't., Communist Party was precluded from obtaining use of statement made by Gov't. witness Budenz to FBI, and therefore denied right of cross-examination to determine to what extent, if any, part of his testimony was tainted. Appeal to U.S.S.C. to be filed.

"(1) Is the membership clause of the Smith Act, 18 U. S. C. Art. 2385, valid under the Constitution of the United States, if it be interpreted to permit a conviction based only on proof that the accused was a member of a society, group or assembly of persons described in the act knowing the purposes thereof?

"(2) If not, is the membership clause constitutionally valid if interpreted as also requiring proof that the membership was accompanied by a specific intent of the accused to accomplish those purposes as speedily as circumstances would permit? Does the Smith Act permissibly bear such an interpretation?

"(3) If the membership clause would not be constitutionally valid as interpreted under (1) or (2), would the clause be constitutionally valid if interpreted as requiring as an element of the crime proof that the accused was an 'active' member? Does the Smith Act permissibly bear an interpretation? If not, and if the clause be valid without such element, does a constitutional application of the membership clause depend upon any such requirement, and if so was such a requirement properly applied by the courts in this case?

"(4) Whether the 'clear and present danger' doctrine, as interpreted by counsel, has application to the membership clause, either with respect to the accused or with respect to the 'society, group, or assembly of persons' described in the statute. If applicable, whether such doctrine was or can now be, properly applied in this case.

"(5) Is 4 (F) of the Internal Security Act, 50 USCA 780, a bar to the present prosecution?

U.S.S.C. held Pl.-Interior Dept. employee entitled to reinstatement with back pay. Pl. discharged 1954 for activities 1941-45, on ground of "natl. security", sought hearing. 1956 Pl. dismissed without statement of grounds, retroactive to 1954, since Pl. subject to summary dismissal. Harlan, J. (for 5 JJ.): Secy. of Interior obligated to conform to procedural standards he had formulated in Order No. 2738 under Ex. Order 10450, 5 U.S.C.A. Sec. 631, (22-1): ". . . in proceedings of this nature, in which the ordinary rules of evidence do not apply, in which matters involving the disclosure of confidential information are withheld, and where it must be recognized that counsel is under practical constraints in the making of objections and in the tactical handling of his case which would not obtain in a cause being tried in a court of law before trained judges, scrupulous observance of departmental procedural safeguards is clearly of particular importance". Pet's. rights violated: 1) charges not specified sufficiently; 2) rules re orderly hearing and reasonable restrictions re relevancy, competency and materiality not followed in hearing; 3) rules called for employee's right to cross-examine other than "confidential informants"; here Gov't. named some persons in questioning Pet., but they were not called for his cross-examination. Frankfurter, Clark, Whittaker and Stewart, JJ., concurred in part, dissented because felt 1956 dismissal, without statement of reason, was valid. June 22: Pl. reinstated, paid $10,000 as first part of claim for 1954-1959 period.

Warren, C.J.: "The issue, as we see it, is whether the Dept. of Defense has been authorized to create an industrial security clearance program under which affected persons may lose their jobs and may be restrained from following their chosen professions on the basis of fact determinations concerning their fitness for clearance made in proceedings in which they were denied the traditional procedural safeguards of confrontation and cross-examination." (Deciding Bd. did not question investigators or even see confidential informants.)

"We decide only that in the absence of explicit authority from either the President or Congress the Resps. were not empowered to deprive Petr. of his job in a proceeding in which he was not afforded the safeguards of confrontation and cross-examination".

Harlan, J.: (1) Watkins (354 U.S. 178) "did not involve the broad and inflexible holding" that Rule XI authorizing UnAmerican Activities Comm. was constitutionally too vague; besides, Congress, apart from Rule, has clearly shown it knows Comm. has authority to investigate broadly, has given it appropriations to investigate education, communism. (2) Pl. did not raise issue of pertinency; even if he had, pertinency was shown "with indisputable clarity". (3) Ct. is deciding only Pl. in contempt for refusing to answer questions re "his participation in or knowledge of alleged Communist Party activities at educational institutions" in US. (4) Comm. Party not "an ordinary political party". (5) Congress may investigate education. (6) No exposure for sake of exposure here. (7) "We conclude that the balance between the individual and the gov'tal interests here at stake must be struck in favor of the latter, and that therefore the provisions of the First Amendment have not been offended." Black, J., Warren, C.J., Douglas, J. diss.: (1) Rule XI "authorizes such a sweeping, unlimited, all -inclusive and undiscriminating compulsory examination of witnesses in the field of speech, press, petition and assembly that it violates the procedural requirements of the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment. (2) Compelling an answer to the questions . . . [here] abridges freedom of speech and association in contravention of the First Amendment. (3) The Committee proceedings were part of a legislative program to stigmatize and punish by public identification and exposure all witnesses considered by the Comm. to be guilty of Communist affiliations, as well as all witnesses who refused to answer Comm. questions on constitutional grounds; the Comm. was thus improperly seeking to try, convict, and punish suspects, a task which the Constitution expressly denies to Congress and grants exclusively to the cts., to be exercised by them only after indictment and in full compliance with all the safeguards provided by the Bill of Rights."

June 24, 1959: DC denied Def's. motion to dismiss indictment on ground questions Def. refused to answer were framed from information illegally obtained by subcommittee's chief investigator.

272.3. New Hampshire v. Uphaus. (U.S.S.C., #778.) June: U.S.S.C. (5-4) upheld conviction of Def., deciding sole question: validity of order of contempt for refusal to produce list of guests at Def's. World Fellowship camp in N.H. Clark, J.: (1) All Nelson (350 U.S. 497) did was proscribe "a race between fedl. and state prosecutors to the courthouse door. The opinion made clear that a State could proceed with prosecutions for sedition agains the State itself; that it can legitimately investigate in this area follows a fortiori." (2) ". . . the academic and political freedoms discussed in Sweezy (354 U.S. 234) are not present here in the same degree, since World Fellowship is neither a university nor a political party". (3) N.H. Sup. Ct. found beyond reasonable doubt N.H. Legislature desired answers from Def.; U.S.S.C. bound by this. (4) Def. had standing to assert any rights of guests whose identity he sought to shield. (5) In balancing interests of Def. (and guests) under First Amendment against State interest, the latter controls. Brennan, J., Warren, C.J., Black, Douglas, JJ. diss.: analyzing Atty. Gen'ls. reports from his investigations: ". . . it is quite clear that exposure was the very core, and deliberately and purposefully so, of the legislative investigation we are concerned with here . . . If bills of attainder were still a legitimate legislative end, it is clear that the investigations and reports might naturally have furnished the starting point (though only that) for a legislative adjudication of guilt under the 1951 Act . . . I can see no serious and substantial relationship between the furnishing of these further minutiae about what was going on at the World Fellowship camp and the process of legislation, the consideration of the enactment of laws, with which ultimately we are concerned . . . Here we must demand some initial showing by the State sufficient to counter-balance the interest in privacy as it relates to freedom of speech and assembly . . . N.H. has not made such a showing here." Petition for rehearing pending.

Ct. held: witnesses before Def.-Comm. must give list of names of NAACP members in Co. so Comm. can check whether 100 named as Communists are also NAACP members; witnesses must answer whether named person, identified as Communist, is NAACP member, otherwise need not answer whether named person is Communist because no showing of pertinency; Nelson decision permits state investigations of this kind; Atty. Graves, called as witness, cannot claim atty.-cient privilege in refusing to produce NAACP records because records are not his work product as atty. June 22: U.S.S.C. denied certiorari.

Ct. affirmed holding that Sec. 3 of Chap. 377, Laws of 1955 — incorporating U.S. Atty. Gen'l's. list of "subversive organizations" in oath provision for state employees — is unconstitutional. Ct. upheld constitutionality of remainder of act, including: 1) finding that Communist Party is a "subversive organization"; 2) State has power, even under Nelson, 350 U.S. 497, to pass state act regarding seditious activities against state; 3) State can require every present or prospective public employee to state under oath whether he is a member of the Comm. Party or other subversive organization at time oath is taken. This is not bill of attainder, nor does it violate privilege against self-incrimination; 4) "Scienter" is implied in every clause" of oath. May 28: notice of appeal to U.S.S.C. filed.

Maj., per Frankfurter, J., held error harmless where same information was revealed by witness during cross-examination and on questioning by trial judge. Brennan, J., Warren, C.J., Black, Douglas, JJ., diss.: This was not harmless error because this witness gave sole corroboration of testimony of chief Gov't. witness.

(5-4) held Defs. not entitled to inspect grand jury minutes of testimony of Gov't. witnesses used in trial, either under U.S.S.C. decision in Jencks, or under Jencks Act, Sec. 3500. Brennan, J., Warren, C.J., Black, Douglas, JJ., diss.: Def. requested trial judge to inspect grand jury minutes and turn over that part showing testimony of Gov't's. chief witness on matters testified to in trial. Impeachment of this witness would have been important. "The considerations which moved us to lay down this principle as to prior statements of gov't. witnesses made to gov't. agents [in Jencks] obviously apply with equal force to the grand jury testimony of a gov't. witness. For the defense will rarely be able to lay a foundation for obtaining grand jury testimony by showing it is inconsistent with trial testimony unless it can inspect the grand jury testimony, and, apparently in recognition of this fact, the Court holds today that a preliminary showing of inconsistency by the defense would not be necessary in order for it to obtain access to relevant grand jury minutes".
312.14a. Palermo v. U. S. (U.S.S.C.) (258 F. 2d 397.) Issue: was Def. entitled to inspection of statement of Gov't. witness when statement consisted of agent's brief summary of 600 words of conversation with witness lasting 3½ hrs, under Jencks Act? June 22: U.S.S.C. affirmed conviction; Frankfurther, J.: sole standard governing this question is Jencks Act, under which production not required because not authenticated or substantially verbatim pre-trial statement. Brennan, J., Warren, C.J., Black, Douglas, JJ.: concur in result, but see "no justification for the Court's ranging far afield of the necessities of the case in . . . a general interpretation of the so-called Jencks Act. Many more concrete cases must be adjudicated in the district courts before we shall be familiar with all the problems created by the statute . . . Indeed Congress took particular pains to make it clear that the legislation 'reaffirms' that decision's holding that a Def. on trial in a criminal prosecution is entitled to relevant and competent reports and statements in possession of the Gov't. touching the events and activities as to which a gov't. witness has testified at the trial".

U.S.S.C. affirmed as to Def.-proprietors, unanimously reversed as to Def.-employees, held all four Defs. had participated in lottery and concealment thereof, in violation of state law. 2 Defs., proprietors, liable to pay fedl. tax, failed to pay it; 2 Defs. only employees; no evidence in the record to show they knew such tax had to be paid. Harlan, Douglas, Brennan, JJ., concurred in reversal as to 2 Defs., dissented as to affirmance as to 2 Defs. for lack of proof that they knew tax was owing.

333.10. Mills v. Louisiana. (U.S.S.C., #74-75.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 53. June 8: U.S.S.C. (6-3) affirmed judgments, per curiam, citing Knapp, 357 U.S. 371. Brennan, J., concurred, reiterating nothing in Mills forecloses reconsideration of Feldman, 322 U.S. 487. Warren, C.J., Black, Douglas, JJ., diss.: "In Knapp . . . the Court left open the question whether in the case of collaboration between state and fed'l. officers a witness could successfully assert the fed'l. privilege against self-incrimination in a state proceeding. In my view that question should be answered here for the records in these cases show such collaboration". "The Knapp decision when taken in conjunction with Feldman, means that a person can be convicted of a fedl. crime on the basis of testimony which he is compelled to give in a state investigation. This opens vast opportunities for calculated efforts by state and fedl. officers working together to force a disclosure in a state proceeding and to convict on the basis of that disclosure in a fedl. proceeding. Such opportunities will not go unused unless the cts. are vigilant to protect the rights of persons who find themselves faced with such coaction . . . Such vigilance becomes increasingly required as the Fedl. Gov't., through prosecutions for tax evasion, moves into the criminal areas regulated by the States". Douglas, J. (Warren, C.J., Black, J.), diss.: "As long as Feldman stands on the books, the state courts should be required to recognize the fedl. right against self-incrimination — lest it be lost forever . . . The question remains whether a state court can override a claim of fedl. right seasonably raised in the state proceeding, when the failure to recognize the fedl. right will result in its destruction or nullification".

Brennan, J.: "After the Commission, speaking for the State, acted as it did, to sustain the Ohio Supreme Court's judgment would be to sanction an indefensible sort of entrapment by the State — convicting a citizen for exercising a privilege which the State had clearly told him was available to him". Ohio has a broad immunity statute, but, "for reasons unexplained," its existence was not mentioned to Def. "We think it impermissible in a criminal case to excuse fatal defects by assuming that a person summoned to an inquiry, simply because he expresses defiance beforehand, will continue to be defiant even if a proper explanation is made of what the inquiry wants of him and the basis on which it is wanted".

Feb. 3: Def. called close friend, a rookie policeman, describing incident resulting in death of decedent. Feb. 4: Def., accompanied by counsel, surrendered. Def. then questioned, off and on, for 12 hours (thru the night), driven in police car back and forth across Manhattan bridges, transferred from one police station to another. Def. then signed confession. Def's. repeated requests to confer with counsel were denied during entire period. Def. convicted of first degree murder; affirmed. U.S.S.C. unanimously reversed, Warren, C.J.: "We conclude that Pet'r's. will was overborne by official pressure, fatigue and sympathy falsely aroused . . . The police were not . . . merely trying to solve a crime, or even to absolve a suspect . . . They were rather concerned primarily with securing a statement from Def. on which they could convict him . . ." Douglas, J., concurring: "What use is a Def's. right to effective counsel at every stage of a criminal case if, while he is held awaiting trial, he can be questioned in the absence of counsel until he confesses? In that event, the secret trial in the police precincts effectively supplants the public trial guaranteed by the Bill of Rights".

After App. Div. affirmed convictions, NY Ct. of App. dismissed appeal on ground no substantial constitutional question involved. U.S.S.C. dismissed appeal (5-4) per Harlan, J.: held Pets. protected because able to go out of room to consult counsel, proceeding conducted in private similar to grand jury where counsel also excluded; legislature has approved this procedure, which is just the investigative stage. Black, J., Warren, C.J., Douglas, Brennan, JJ., diss.: "The naked stark issue here is whether a judge, . . . can consistently with due process compel persons to testify and perhaps to lay the groundwork for their later conviction of crime, in secret chambers, where counsel for the State can be present but where counsel for the suspect cannot. In upholding such secret inquisitions the Court once again retreats from what I conceive to be its highest duty, that of maintaining unimpaired the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment and the Bill of Rights".

(5-4) reversed, per Brennan, J.: review "limited to the narrow question whether the facts adduced are capable of supporting the findings that Pet'r's. speech impugned Judge Wiig's impartiality and fairness in conducting the Smith Act trial and thus reflected upon his integrity in the dispensation of justice in that case". "We start with the proposition that lawyers are free to criticize the state of the law" (citing U.S.S.C. opinions, among others.) "Even if some passages [of Petr's speech] can be found which go so far as to imply that Judge Wiig was taking an erroneous view of the law — . . . we think there was still nothing in the speech warranting the findings . . ." ". . . the total insufficiency of the evidence to sustain a serious charge of professional misconduct, against a backdrop of the claimed constitutional rights of an attorney to speak as freely as another citizen, is not one which can be subsumed under the headings of local practice, customs or law". Ct. did not decide point dealing with post-trial interview with juror. Stewart, J., concurred, because this not a case of atty. attempting to obstruct or prejudice administration of justice.
