To hold a broadcaster liable for filming such an event could, said the trial judge,
seriously chill freedom of the press. Eight years after the accident, California's
Supreme Court took a very different view of the case. The high court agreed with
the trial judge that the material in issue was newsworthy and that its filming could
not create liability for invasion of privacy. But the supreme court felt differently
about the Shulmans claim of "intrusion." They sent the case back for a trial on
such ...

The basis of the trial court order was the belief that: "[i]f protective orders are not
available, it could have a chilling effect on a party's willingness to bring his case
to court ... . [A]ccess to the courts [should be put] on an equal plane of importance
with freedom of the press because it is through the courts that our fundamental
freedoms are protected and enforced." The Seattle Times appealed the trial court

The Court said it could not state exactly where the line between what can and
cannot be reported would be drawn in every case, but stressed “we are quite
sure that the First and Fourteenth Amendments do not immunize the media ... the
investment required to produce a performance of interest to the public and allows

To resolve these competing interests, the Supreme Court, while supporting the
preferred position of the First Amendment's right of freedom of the press, has
developed a balancing test to determine in each case which party's interests are
more compelling or which weights to assign to the competing values.“ During
most of the twentieth century, the use of the “balancing test” resulted in a series of
decisions supporting the individual's right to privacy over the interest of the press.

Whilst the majority of the United States Supreme Court have consistently
maintained that not all speech is protected by the guarantee of speech and press
freedom, they have nonetheless found it difficult to fit the right of privacy in as a
limitation of that freedom36. This is vividly illustrated by the much-debated
decision of Time, Inc. v. HUP7, and its sweeping extension of the famous New
York Times rule38 to the law of privacy. In that case the majority laid down that
where the subject ...

The Court avoided the larger question presented by the case: Whether truthful
publications may ever be subjected to civil or criminal liability consistently with
the First and Fourteenth Amendments, or to put it another way, whether the State
