A federal judge in Alexandria, Va., declared unconstitutional a Virginia law that bans the display of sexually explicit printed matter that, even if not obscene, could be “harmful to juveniles.” U.S. District Judge Richard L. Williams said that under the law, so many materials could be considered harmful to juveniles that it could have a damaging effect on access to materials and would hurt businesses. Williams permanently enjoined the city and county police departments from enforcing the law.
