USA > New York Times v. Sullivan

Decision Date: March 9, 1964

 

Freedom of the press:

libel and slander

 

Background:

In 1960, the New York Times

ran a full-page advertisement paid for

by civil right activists.

 

The ad openly criticized

the police department

in the city of Montgomery, Alabama

for its treatment of civil rights protestors.

 

Most of the descriptions in the ad

were accurate,

but some of the statements

were false.

 

The police commissioner,

L. B. Sullivan,

took offense to the ad

and sued the New York Times

in an Alabama court.

 

Sullivan argued that the ad

had damaged his reputation,

and he had been libeled.

 

The Alabama court

ruled in favor of Sullivan,

finding that the newspaper ad

falsely represented

the police department and Sullivan.

 

After losing an appeal

in the Supreme Court of Alabama,

the New York Times took its case

to the United States Supreme Court

arguing that the ad was not meant

to hurt Sullivan's reputation

and was protected

under the First Amendment.

 

Decision:

The United States Supreme Court

unanimously ruled in favor of the newspaper.

 

The Court said

the right to publish all statements

is protected under the First Amendment.

 

The Court also said

in order to prove libel,

a public official must show

that what was said against them

was made with actual malice

"that is, with knowledge

that it was false

or with reckless disregard for the truth."
