It came in a case involving Chicago lawyer Elmer Gertz, who was called a "Communist by the John Birch American Opinion ronter" Society's lagazine after he represented he family of a youth shot by a hicago policeman. Gertz won a $50,000 libel udgment from a jury, a judg- ent overturned by the U.S. Circuit Court in Chicago. The upreme Court sent the case jack to the lower court for a iew trial. Justices William O. Douglas nd William J. Brennan' dis- ented on grounds that it in- ringes on freedom of the press. Chief Justice Warren E. Bur- :er and Justice Byron White at- acked the majority from the opposite direction. White said the decision "goes ar towards eviscerating the ef- ectiveness of the ordinary libel .ction" and would "leave the jeoplc at the complete mercy if the press." Burger, noting hat the case decided involved a lawyer who was criticized be- ause of his involvement in a ontroversial legal proceeding, aid: The right to counsel would gravely jeopardized if every avvyer who lakes an unpopular ase, civil or criminal, would lutomalically become fair game for irresponsible report- TS and editors who might, for sample, describe the lawyer is a 'mob mouthpiece' for representing a client with a erious prior criminal record."
