Slayer Wins Lawsuit

A San Luis Obispo (California) Superior Court judge threw out on Monday a lawsuit accusing SLAYER, Columbia Records and other industry entities of marketing and distributing music that inspired three boys to murder 15-year-old Elyse Pahler in 1995. However, the precedent-setting case appears to be far from over, as the plaintiff's lawyer said he intends to file an appeal. According to an MTV News report, Judge E. Jeffrey Burke didn't consider SLAYER's music obscene, indecent or directly harmful to minors, so the marketing of such music to minors was therefore ruled to be legal.
