The First Amendment and Advertising The Supreme Court and Tobacco, Lawyer and Liquor Advertising By DJ Ford The Central Hudson Test

The Court established a four-prong test in Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. v. Public Service Commission of NY, 477 U.S. 564 (1980) Why? There was a state regulation banning electric utilities from using all ads promoting the use of electricity. The Court struck down this ban, saying the blanket ban violated the First Amendment The Prongs

To be upheld the ad restriction must pass The Courts test, which entails, in the following order: Determining whether the speech is protected by the First Amendment. Determining whether the government interest is substantial. Determining whether the law advances that interest Determining if the law is more extensive than necessary

Lawyer Advertising Bates v. State Bar of Arizona 433 U.S. 350 (1977) The Court upheld a ban on price advertising for complex legal services Misleading because lawyers can NOT put a definitive tag how much its going to cost.

Lawyer Advertising In-person advertising also prohibited Person is distraught divorce, medical malpractice Privacy is invaded Coercion, intimidation May demand an immediate response Alcohol Advertising
