John Maginnis' analysis regarding the lawsuit filed by Royal Alexander demonstrates a complete lack of legal acumen. Maginnis asserts Alexander filed a lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order to cease the broadcast of a television commercial that contained lies without a working knowledge of the First Amendment. On the contrary, Alexander knew the courts were hesitant to enjoin false or slanderous political advertisements; however, many of the cases contained strong dissenting opinions.
