Supreme Court Justices, Bare Buttocks and the FCC

The Supreme Court is used to obscenity. People are always appearing before it and stating things in their briefs.

But they are being asked to rule on it, and the discussion was more titillating than usual.

The subject? The Federal Communications Commission’s ability to police obscenity on broadcast television.

To make the point that potentially objectionable nudity was not the sole province of broadcast networks, ABC lawyer Seth Waxman glanced up at the frieze in the courtroom and noted, according to “USA Today,” “There’s a bare buttock there, and there’s a bare buttock here. I had never focused on it before.”
