Libraries' Case Against CIPA Moves Forward

A three-judge federal district court panel July 26 refused to dismiss lawsuits brought by the American Library Association and the American Civil Liberties Union, challenging the Children's Internet Protection Act's requirements for libraries. The court set a trial date of February 14, 2002 for the consolidated case to be heard. The Justice Department had asked the court to dismiss the lawsuits.

The focus of the current litigation does not include the new requirements that CIPA imposes on school districts that receive E-rate support for Internet access or internal connections or certain other kinds of federal educational technology support.
