The 1970s: Press freedoms tested

Main content start

Stanford Daily in the Spotlight

All eyes on the Supreme Court who argued Zurcher v. Stanford Daily.

Featured Milestones


Zurcher v. Stanford Daily

After the Stanford Daily was suspected of having pictures of a 1971 campus medical center demonstration, police searched the newsroom for evidence. The Daily filed a suit claiming the warrants were unconstitutional. The U.S. Supreme Court argued Zurcher v. Stanford Daily in 1978 but the court ruled against the Daily. However two years later, Congress passed the Privacy Protection Act of 1980, which protected journalists and their work from government officials.

Police Search Stanford Daily Offices

Armed with a search warrant, Palo Alto police searched photographic files, desks, and stacks of old newspapers at The Stanford Daily for photographic evidence of a April 9, 1971 hospital sit-in.

Highlights from The Stanford Daily Archive
