The Government vs. Erotica: The Siege of Adam & Eve
37 armed law enforcement agents forced their way into the offices of Adam & Eve in 1986. Employees were detained without due process or access to an attorney. This was only the start of 8 years of legal battles and $3 million in legal fees that would mean the difference between survival and oblivion.
Adam & Eve President Phil Harvey writes in his own words why he became a champion for free speech as a result of tactics that the courts later said were "intrusive and intimidating" – and how for creating the catalog you hold in your hands, he could have spent 45 years in Federal prison.
A must-read and a wake-up call for First Amendment believers.
