William Rehnquist on Technology
Supreme Court Justice (nominated by Pres. Nixon 1972)
The majority invalidated the law on First Amendment grounds [because] the same result could have been achieved through less intrusive methods.
But to Justice Breyer, these were technical issues calling for judicial modesty and deference to Congress. Reaching across the usual philosophical lines, Justice Breyer authored the main dissenting opinion in the case, joined by Scalia, Rehnquist, and O'Connor. Breyer expressed the need for deference to Congress's judgment in seeking to shield children from unwanted adult-programming signals. To Justice Breyer, Congress knows best.
