Three federal appellate judges told a district court judge to allow three Licking, Mo., inmates to pursue their right to read porn. The inmates wanted to read Rockstar, Penthouse, Penthouse-Forum and American Curves magazines, but prison officials said they were too hot to handle. Specifically, the magazines promoted violence and portrayed explicit and sadistic sex acts as well as sex acts that violate state and federal law. But the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the inmates sufficiently stated a claim to challenge the regulations as they apply to the magazines they want to read.
