Supreme Court Turns Down Parody Case Backed by the Onion

From a Wall Street Journal story by Joseph Pisani headlined “Supreme Court Turns Down Facebook Police Parody Case Backed by the Onion”:

When Anthony Novak created a parody Facebook account of his local police department seven years ago, he said he had one goal.

“I just thought it would make my Facebook friends laugh,” he said.

Instead, the fake page landed him in jail for four days. He sued and tried to bring his case up to the Supreme Court. His case got the support of the Onion, one of the most famous satire sites in the U.S.
