Learn about the Supreme Court case Nebraska Press Association v. Stuart from University of Nebraska-Omaha professor Mark Scherer (Shear-urh). In 1975, Erwin Simants murdered 6 members of the Kellie family in the rural town of Sutherland, Nebraska.  What soon followed was a media frenzy from all across the state.  To ensure that Simants 6 th Amendment rights were not violated, the judge overhearing the case bared the media from printing facts about Simants in the paper.  Even though the press understood the need for an impartial jury, they still felt the gag order was a violation of their 1 st Amendment rights. In his book Rights in the Balance: Free Press, Fair Trial, and Nebraska Press Association v. Stuart , author Mark Scherer (Shear-urh) examines how this case made it to the U.S. Supreme Court and the president their decision set.
