Originally intended as a companion book to the author's Communication Law in America, this case law book can comfortably stand on its own as a great read, and a great resource for anyone. This book covers 55 cases in all - 34 United States Supreme Court decisions, 13 federal appellate decisions, and 6 federal district court cases. The book also includes 2 state cases: 1 from the Supreme Court of Hawaii and the other from a lower court in New York. Several excerpts of court cases are included for each topic, rather than one long case per chapter, resulting in more meaningful, manageable selections. For anyone working in Communications or the Media, or anyone interested in Media Law.
