11.3. Am. Civil Liberties Union v. Los Angeles City Bd. of Educ.

(Calif. Sup. Ct.) [Cite as: VI CIV. LIB. DOCKET 51, #11.3. ] For facts, see VI DOCKET 1. Jan. 24, 1961: Calif. Sup. Ct. reversed (4-3), held Educ. Code Sec. 16565 unconstitutional as prior restraint on assembly by requiring non-communist oath of applicants for use of public school facilities. Sec. would prohibit Communist meetings held to discuss lawful purposes involving no clear and present danger, in violation of First Amendment. Ct. read Dennis only as "explained in Yates", distinguished ACA v. Douds, said no legislative finding has been made that Communist Party advocated concrete action of violent overthrow in public meetings. Ct. issued peremptory writ directing Def. to grant Pl. permission to meet in public school without signing form in Sec. 16565.

11.6. Rockwell v. NYC Park Commr. (N.Y. Sup. Ct., App. Div., 1st Dept.) June 20, 1960: Sup.

Ct. dismissed Pet's. action to compel Commr. to grant permit, held First Amendment not involved because Pet. had called NYC residents "traitors" on basis of their race and color. Feb. 14, 1961: App. Div. reversed (4-1): "The unpopularity of views, their shocking quality, their obnoxiousness and even their alarming impact is not enough. Otherwise the preacher of any strange doctrine could be stopped; the anti-racist himself could be suppressed".

(5-4) affirmed denial of injunction to Pl. seeking relief from prior censorship of film, per Clark, J.: U.S.S.C. can't limit state remedy for obscene films to prosecution of film exhibitors after the showing. "We, of course, are not holding that city officials may be granted the power to prevent the showing of any motion picture they deem unworthy of a license". Warren, C.J., Douglas, J., diss. opinions, with Black, Brennan, JJ.: U.S.S.C. has fallen "into full retreat" from "one of bases of First Amendment" — bar against prior restraint; this method requires extended litigation by film cos., without explaining why movies should be treated differently from every other medium of expression.

People will . . . differ in their degree of condemnation of such breaches of the moral code; . . . even a continued illicit relation is not inevitably an index of a bad 'moral character'. The statute is not penal; it does not mean to punish for past conduct, but to admit as citizens those who are likely to prove law-abiding and useful.
