July 5, 2005, The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) and the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) are pleased to announce their official partnership! As of July 1, 2005, two of the nation's leading organizations dedicated to the rights of consenting adults and free speech will team up to network, educate the public on overlapping issues, raise funding, and reach out to new members.

This announcement is being made on the heels of the Free Speech Coalition's filing a constitutional challenge to injunction against U.S.C. 18, Section 2257, a record-keeping and labeling law which is being expanded to include the Internet and has had a direct effect on leather, fetish, and swingers groups, their publications and outreach efforts, as well web sites and the wide variety of businesses that serve these communities.

Now, more than ever, it is critical for like-minded people to unify in the struggle for sexual freedom and expression!

Join FSC and NCSF and help us celebrate this new partnership with a toast and a much needed donation by going to www.ncsfreedom.org and www.freespeechcoalition.com

CANOGA PARK, Calif. – The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) today filed a complaint and motion in the United States District Court of Colorado seeking a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) enjoining enforcement of the recently re-issued federal record-keeping and labeling requirements, 18 U.S.C. § 2257, which are due to go into effect June 23, 2005.

The case is Free Speech Coalition v. Alberto Gonzales, # 05 CV 1126 WDM.

The lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of the membership of the Free Speech Coalition by attorneys representing three law firms - Colorado-based Schwartz & Goldberg PC, Sirkin, Pinales & Schwartz LLP of Ohio, and the Buffalo, N.Y.-based law firm of Lipsitz, Green, Fahringer, Roll, Salisbury & Cambria - contains over 20 separate claims on which basis FSC is asking the court to issue a Temporary Restraining Order.

The expectation of the attorneys is that the court will order a hearing on the motion for a TRO before the regulations are scheduled to go into effect, at which time plaintiff attorneys H. Louis Sirkin, Paul J. Cambria, Jr., and Michael W. Gross of Schwartz & Goldberg will present arguments why temporary injunctive relief prohibiting the enforcement of 18 U.S.C. § 2257 should be granted by the court.
