LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition, which on Monday received word that much of the recordkeeping regulations for adult producers had been gutted, today launched a "2257 lawsuit donation" page on its website.
“This battle has been going on since 2005 at more than $1 million in legal costs, and we currently still owe $165,000 before even considering the cost of a potential appeal,” the FSC said on its donation page.
The FSC issued a statement on Wednesday, explaining U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson’s final judgment and decree over 18 U.S.C. §§ 2257 and 2257A. The adult trade group called the judgment a “major legal victory.”
The legal battle, however, would continue if the Justice Department appeals Baylson’s ruling.
Many experts are expecting the federal government to ask the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to get involved. And, the case could possibly find its way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
On its donation page, the FSC says, “We thank you for considering to make a donation in an effort to bring this case to a victorious conclusion.”
