    56 Forsyth Street, NW, Atlanta, GA

    When: 5/8/1992

    What: After two years of countersuits and trials, the Eleventh Federal Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a previous ruling that 2 Live Crew’s As Nasty As They Wanna Be was obscene and sale of the album illegal. The decision was a major win for free speech in music.
