The Second Circuit has reversed the injunction against 60 Years Later, J.D. California’s published sequel to Catcher in the Rye. The OTW submitted an amicus brief in support of this reversal. The decision is worth a read; as OTW legal chair Rebecca Tushnet notes, there’s some nice language about the public’s independent First Amendment interest in getting to see ideas and expression. The case has been sent back to the lower court and the fight will no doubt continue, but it’s nice to see that books can’t be so easily suppressed.
