Prior Restraint: Freedom of the Press v. National Security

Zuroff, Dawn

"A prior restraint is a court order banning publication of unpublished material. Clearly, this power needs to be squared with the fundamental right to a free press as guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The extent to which exceptions to this First Amendment freedom can be justified has always been a matter of dispute."--from page 31
