High court strengthens

l

be suits

WASHINGTON - The Supreme
Court, in two unanimous rulings
yesterday, made national publications
and the people who work for them
easier targets'for libel suits. -
In cases involving Hustler magazine
and two National Enquirer journalists.,
the court said people who sue any,
nationally distributed publication for
libel may shop for the state offering the
most favorable laws and filing
deadlines.
AND IT SAID reporters and editors
may be sued, along with their em-
ployers, in distant state courts.
One decision allows actress Shirley
Jones to include the National
Enquirer's editor and one of his repor-
ters as defendants in her $20 million
lawsuit in California courts against the
weekly newspaper.
The suit by Jones and her husband,
theatrical producer Marty Ingels,
stems from an Oct. 9, 1979, article that
said Ingels had "terrorized his staff,
cheated stars, outraged advertisers

and scandalized Hollywood," and that
his wife "had been driven to drink by
his bizarre behavior."
A trial is scheduled to begin in Los
Angeles on Aug. 27.
Ruling separately to revive an $80
million suit against Hustler magazine
be a female official of rival magazine
Penthouse, the court unanimously said
a publication can reasonably expect to"
be sued "wherever a substantial num-
ber of copies are regularly sold and
distributed."
The 9-0 ruling in the Hustler case
allows Penthouse executive Kathy
Keeton to pursue her libel case in New
Hampshire, which is the last state that
can still consider her claims..
HER SUIT against Hustler Publisher
Larry Flynt arises from a 1976 Hustler
cartoon she claims accuses her com-
mon-lay husband, Penthouse publisher
Robert Guccione, of infecting her with
venereal disease.
In both cases the court emphasized
that the publications were national and

had large circulations in the states
where the suits were brought.
The rulings were a blow to publishers
and broadcasters who argued that sub-
jecting them to litigation in far away
states would lead to disruption in
Newsrooms, costly legal fees, and
possibly, crippling damage awards.
"THE COURT has provided a terrific
club and allowed an enormously in-
timidating power," said Jack Landau,
director of the Reporters Committee
for Freedom of the Press.
Of the National Enquirer decision
Landau said, "It forces a reporter to
travel across the country to defend
himself, to put his own assets on the
line."
But the courts actions were
welcomed by Paul Ablon, Jones'
lawyer, who said "National
publications already are spending lots
of money sending reporters to cover
stories in distant places. Why shouldn't
they spend money to have to defend
themselves and those reporters?"

Educators oppose
new income tax cut

LANSING (UPI) - Several
statewide educaion groups announced
yesterday their opposition to an income
tax cut that will initially be debated ini
the Senate this week.
Representatives of the coalition - a
group of nine associations representing
teachers, school boards, colleges and
administrators - said at a Capitol news
conference that the proposal is
premature and unfair to education.
THE PROPOSAL, to be debated in
the state Senate tomorrow would set
Michigan's income tax rate at 4.6 per-
cent - the level before last year's con-
troversial tax hike - as of Oct.1.
Senate Republican Leader John
Engler of Mount Pleasant said mem-
bers of his party are ready to vote on
the tax cut, but acknowledged that the
final result may be a variation or
modification of the proposal.
The proposal is tied to a limit in state
spending for fiscal year 1985, but sub-
stantial cuts from the budget proposed
by Gov. James Blanchard would be
necessary.
ONE SENATOR, for example, has
suggested cutting all general assistan-
ce payments to welfare recipients for
six months next year, a proposal most
Democrats vehemently oppose.
Engler. said his caucus has drawn up
alternative spending cuts,. an in-
dication; perhaps, that Republicans

acknowledge substantial cuts in
welfare probably would not pass the
Democratic-controlled House.
Don Elliott, executive director of the
Michigan Association of School, Ad-
ministrators, criticized lawmakers who
want to cut the tax while promising in-
creases in state spending on education.
"We feel the Legislature should adopt
a responsible budget and at that time
take a look at revenues," said Elliott,
adding that even Blanchard's proposal
for an accelerated rollback in the tax
hike as of Oct. 1 might not be adequate.

Wisc. senate asses
liquor control law

MADISON, Wis. (UPI) - A bill to
restrict consumption of alcoholic
beverages in Wisconsin by out-of-state
youths cleared the Senate on a 22-10
vote yesterday. It faces a rough road in
the Assembly.1
The so-called "border-hopping" bill
is aimed at reducing the influx of young
people who live in adjoining states with
higher legal drinking ages - mainly
Illinois and Michigan, where the legal
drinking age is 21.
WISCONSIN'S current legal drinking
age is 18, but it will go to 19 in July.
Many legislators claim that willbsolve
part of the problem involving border
hopping by youthful residents of Iowa
and Minnesota, where the legal
drinking age also is 19.
The only exemptions to the bill would
be out-of-state residents who go to school
in Wisconsin and military personnel
stationed in this state. They could drink
at 19 no matter what the legal drinking
age is in their home states.
Gov. Anthony Earl and many school
and civil groups have endorsed the
measure as a way to reduce the traffic
accidents and other problems caused
by young drinkers who travel to
Wisconsin and then travel home.
THE SENATE okayed a similar piece
of legislation last year, but the Assem-
bly killed it. That could happen again
this time.
Sen. John Maurer, (D-Kenosha)

noted that most of the problems occur
in southeastern Wisconsin "where
we've got a population of 6 million or
more within an hour's drive of our
county (the Chicago area)."
"We want to live in peace and har-
mony like people in other counties,"
Maurer said.
MUCH OF the opposition is from
operators of border taverns who claim
the restrictions would be impossible to
enforce.
"If you want to enforce it, you can en-
force it, Maurer told the Senate.
Senate Republican Lea der James
Harsdorf disagreed.
"It is not enforceable," Harsdorf
said. "We are never going to solve the
problem of people driving back and for-
th between states. We ought not to stick
our nose into a situation that will not
solve the problem."
