On March 23, 2007, the federal District Court in Salt Lake City rejected arguments that the Utah Child Protection Registry (“CPR”), Utah Code Ann. §§ 13-39-101-13- 39-304, violated the U.S. Constitution and found that the CPR is not preempted by the CAN-SPAM Act. The court’s decision was part of its disposition of Free Speech Coalition, Inc. v. Shurtleff, No. 2:05CV949DAK (D. Utah Mar. 23, 2007) (denying motion for preliminary injunction). The Free Speech Coalition, a trade association representing members of the adult entertainment industry, had filed a motion for preliminary injunction, arguing that the Utah law: 1) is expressly preempted by the federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, 15 U.S.C. §§ 7701-7713 and 18 U.S.C. § 1037; 2) violates the dormant Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution; and 3) violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 15 of the Utah Constitution. The court denied the motion, holding that the CANSPAM Act did not preempt the CPR.
