If you were wondering about the status of a number of lawsuits around reading restrictions, good news: Publishers Weekly is on the job.
Last week, Andrew Albanese shared an update from Little v. Llano County (the high-profile case out of Texas in which library patrons filed suit) along with summaries of other lawsuits and bills in his week-in-libraries roundup.
He also shared news that Amazon and the Big Five publishers will have a chance to persuade a judge to dismiss an amended civil lawsuit over their alleged price-fixing conspiracy.
One more legal(ish) update comes from New York state, whose prison system has reversed its policy that blocks incarcerated writers and artists from making money, according to The Huffington Post.
