PHILADELPHIA — The Free Speech Coalition late yesterday issued a memorandum to a federal judge hearing ongoing proceedings over 18 U.S.C. §§ 2257 and 2257A, asking the court for a final judgment to declare the federal recordkeeping laws unconstitutional and to enjoin their enforcement.
The long-running case over the legality of the recordkeeping law for adult producers hit a fork in the road several months ago after U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson ordered the adult entertainment trade group to work with the Justice Department to attempt to resolve First Amendment issues and formulate a judgment that conformed to decisions the court has already made.
The court presented a draft judgment entry that included declaratory and injunctive relief in favor of the FSC on their as-applied challenges under the First Amendment, but it limited injunctive relief to individuals who were named in the complaint.
