Arkansas Educational Television Commission v. Forbes


The implications of this case were far-reaching, and demonstrate not only the full range of action possible through the law courts, but the delicate balance that exists between points of law and the Constitution. Arguing this case were not only the parties involved. Joint briefs were filed by no fewer than 20 states, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Association of America's Public Television Stations (APTS), the Commission on Presidential Debates, the ACLU, and Acting Solicitor General Walter Dellinger.
