Leech v. American Booksellers Association, Inc.

582 S.W.2d 738 (Tenn. 1979)

The Tennessee Supreme Court rules in the Media Coalition case Leech v. American Booksellers Association that the state’s obscenity and minors access bill is unconstitutional. The overbroad bill was written by Larry Parrish, a lawyer in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Tennessee until 1977 and an anti-pornography activist.
