Paris Adult Theatre I v.
SlatonU. The Court distinguished the case from Stanley v. GeorgiaU. Respondents sued under Georgia civil law to en the exhibiting by petitioners of two allegedly obscene films. There was no prior restraint.
In a jury-waived trial, the trial court which did not require "expert" affirmative evidence of obscenity viewed the films and thereafter dismissed the complaints on the ground that the display of the films in commercial theaters to consenting adult audiences reasonable precautions having been taken to exclude minors was "constitutionally permissible. Obscene material is not speech entitled to First Amendment protection. Miller v.
California, antep. United StatesU. The Georgia civil procedure followed here assuming use of a constitutionally acceptable standard for determining what is unprotected by the First Amendment comported with the standards of Teitel Film Corp.
CusackU. MarylandU. BrownU. It was not error to fail to require expert affirmative evidence of the films' obscenity, since the films which were the best evidence of what they depicted were themselves placed in evidence.

A commercial theater cannot be equated with a private home; nor is there here a privacy right arising from a special relationship, such as marriage.
Stanley v. ConnecticutU. Nor can the privacy of the home be equated with a "zone" of "privacy" that follows a consumer of obscene materials wherever he goes. United States v.
