The Supreme Court of the United States – in a 7-2 decision – upheld the constitutionality of the Protect Act of 2003 – a federal law that gives prosecutors new tools to target those who market and pander in online child pornography.

This is a significant victory that moves to protect the most vulnerable in our society – our children.

And, it is a victory for Congress, which has spent many years trying to come up with a law that would punish those responsible for the ever-increasing problem of child pornography on the Internet and clear constitutional hurdles – efforts that, until now, have not been successful.

At the American Center for Law and Justice, we represented 18 members of Congress – including five co-sponsors of the law – before the high court through an amicus brief which urged the Justices to overturn a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and uphold the constitutionality of the Protect Act.

We’re delighted that the Court did just that.
