Abstract

This note examines the United States Supreme Court decision upholding the federal anti-lottery statutory scheme as constitutional under the First Amendment. The author contends that the Court disregarded precedent which established intermediate scrutiny as the standard of review when determining the constitutionality of restrictions on commercial speech. The Court utilized a mere rationality review, by deferring to legislative policies that at one time served an important interest, but no longer substantiate a complete ban on the free flow of truthful commercial information.
