Opinions in the Sweezy Case
Keywords:Media, Political Economy
AbstractThe opinions delivered by the Supreme Court in three of the four important civil liberties cases decided on June 17th were published in full in the New York Times. The fourth was the Sweezy case, and so far as we know no magazine or newspaper has carried more than brief excerpts from the opinions in this case. Since MR readers have taken a special interest in this case, to the point of providing the financial backing which enabled us to carry it through to a successful conclusion, we are publishing below the most important parts of the two opinions (by Justices Warren and Frankfurter) which expressed the views of the majority of the Court. The opinions are long, and we have been forced to omit passages which will be of interest only to lawyers or those with no previous knowledge of the case. -THE EDITORS
