Overturning of Arizona House Bill 2376

In December 2002, with the assistance of the ACLU, the CCADP was successful in overturning legislation that prevented prisoners in Arizona from using a third party to post information on the internet about their cases on the basis that such a law infringed on the prisoners’ First Amendment rights.

Famous quotes containing the words house, bill and/or arizona:

    ... a family I know ... bought an acre in the country on which to build a house. For many years, while they lacked the money to build, they visited the site regularly and picnicked on a knoll, the site’s most attractive feature. They liked so much to visualize themselves as always there, that when they finally built they put the house on the knoll. But then the knoll was gone. Somehow they had not realized they would destroy it and lose it by supplanting it with themselves.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)

    All I really want to be is boring. When people talk about me, I’d like them to say, “Carol’s basically a short Bill Bradley.” Or, “Carol’s kind of like Al Gore in a skirt.”
    Carol Moseley-Braun (b. 1947)

    Desert rains are usually so definitely demarked that the story of the man who washed his hands in the edge of an Arizona thunder shower without wetting his cuffs seems almost credible.
