Short Take: ACLU seeks to block NY Net law

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a motion for a preliminary injunction against a New York state law that makes it illegal to knowingly transmit indecent material to minors over the Net. The law is similar to the federal Communications Decency Act, soon to be reviewed by the Supreme Court. The ACLU moved to block the New York law separately, on the grounds that it is unconstitutional, because the state intends to continue prosecuting it even before the Supreme Court decides on the constitutionality of the CDA.
