U.S. Supreme Court

Kingsley Int'l Pictures Corp. v. Regents, 360 U.S. 684 (1959)

Kingsley International Pictures Corp. v.

Regents of the University of the State of New York

No. 394

Argued April 23, 1959

Decided June 29, 1959

360 U.S. 684

Syllabus

Under provisions of the New York Education Law which were construed by the Court of Appeals of New York as requiring the denial of a license to show a motion picture when "its subject matter is adultery presented as being right and desirable for certain people under certain circumstances," that Court sustained denial of a license to show a motion picture which it found "alluringly portrays adultery as proper behavior."

Held: as thus construed and applied, the New York statute violates the freedom to advocate ideas which is guaranteed by the First Amendment and protected by the Fourteenth Amendment from infringement by the States. Pp. 360 U. S. 684-690.

4 N.Y.2d 349, 115 N.E.2d 197, 175 N.Y.S.2d 39, reversed.
