SO there's this guy - Alan who now lives in CA.
He's good a pretty neat story. There are books and movies about him and his cases because he's done some pretty cool stuff in his life.
Alan was Larry's friend.
Larry did something that many, MANY people would consider to be NOT NICE.
Larry had this thing that a lot of people liked to buy. In this thing Larry made fun of this guy named Jerry.
Jerry was, and still is, a well respected man in his line of work and Jerry believed that Larry said some mean things about him and his mother.
Of course, Larry believed his things to be so "OUT THERE and RIDICULOUS" that the people that buy his thing would know it was all just a joke and that would be it.
Jerry thought that Larry should be sued and took him to court.
Alan - remember Alan? was also Larry's lawyer.
After Jerry won lawsuits for "Emotional distress damages" in the amount of $200,000 in lower courts, Alan took Larry's case before the Supreme Court of the United States where he successfully argued Larry's appeal and won Larry's case.
A HUGE win for first amendment rights.
