Shouting Fire in a Theater


The 1919 case Schenck  v. United States  concerned the enforcement of the Espionage Act of 1917, which prohibited interference with military operations or recruitment. After Charles Schenck and Elizabeth Baer were convicted for distributing leaflets urging opposition to the wartime draft, they argued that the Act unconstitutionally violated their First Amendment rights. Famously noting that freedom of speech did not “protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre,” the Court upheld their convictions and the constitutionality of the Act as an appropriate exercise of Congress’ wartime authority.
