Article looks briefly at the ongoing fight to have charges against comic store owner overturned.

Another article on the Jesus Castillo case is in this week's issue of Las Vegas City Life.

Mr. Castillo, the manager of Dallas, TX-based Keith's Comics, was charged with promoting obscenity and sentenced to a six-month prison term, a US$4,000 fine and probation for selling an issue of an adult manga to a police officer. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund appealed the sentence twice, losing both times, but has decided to appeal to have the case heard by the United States Supreme Court.

The official CBLDF statement on the case is available here
