Taxpayers Against War Lawsuit Dismissed

About This Item

KPIX-TV news footage from January 22nd 1968 featuring brief scenes from a courthouse where the Taxpayers Against War lawsuit, filed in October 1968, has just been dismissed. Includes brief views of Joan Baez, David Harris and lawyer Francis Heisler walking towards the camera and of Heisler answering reporters questions, stating: "He [the judge] ruled against me but that was not because he was not impressed by the argument ... he was talking about undermining the whole constitutional concept of this nation. That is ... that the country cannot exist unless it can engage in war." Heisler goes onto confirm his intention to file an appeal. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.

It should be noted that Baez had just been released after 31 days in jail as an antidraft protestor and Heisler was a veteran of World War I
