Storyboard Text

  • Meanwhile... Protesters have gathered outside the court house..
  • The Supreme Court decided that "obstructing public passages" was unconstitutional in a vote of 7 to 2. 
  • However, Cox was still guilty of "picketing before a courthouse", so he wasn't free to go.
  • The Louisiana Supreme Court deemed the lower court's decisions unconstitutional.  Louisiana's "disturbing the peace" statute is unconstitutional because it is too vague, and "obstructing public passages" violated Cox's 1st and 14th Amendment rights and is therefor unconstitutional. This was decided in a 7-2 Supreme Court vote.
