Judges in their own words

June 19, 2017

“The forces and directions of the Internet are so new, so protean, and so far reaching that courts must be conscious that what they say today might be obsolete tomorrow.”

—Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the court in Packingham v. North Carolina (No. 15-1194), a case in which the Court held that a North Carolina statute that restricted a felon’s right to use the internet violated the First Amendment.

    I’ve followed Packingham v. North Carolina until the U.S. Supreme Court issued it’s decision regarding the First Amendment a few days ago that restricted a felon’s right to use the internet. Does this decision apply to all the states?
