Transcript of NY Times v. US

USSC Decision
Const. Issue
3rd period
Thy Nguyen
Background of the Case:
- The Court issued a very brief per curiam opinion, stating only that the Court concurred with the decisions of the two lower courts to reject the Government’s request for an injunction.
By a 6-3 decision, the Court ruled in favor of the New York Times.
In 1971, the Court faced these issues again in a case brought by the New York Times.
The newspaper had obtained a copy of documents known as “The Pentagon Papers”—an internal Defense Department report that detailed government deception with regard to the Vietnam War.
The Pentagon Papers surfaced at a time when the American people were deeply divided on the question of United States involvement in the war. The New York Times fought for the right to publish the papers under the umbrella of the 1st Amendment.
