decisions in both Bailey and Pahler were correct. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. The cases of Bailey and Pahler were different because Bailey was suing for defamation, and the Pahler family was suing because their child was murdered in a situation that Slayer’s music was mentioned. The Pahler and Bailey cases were both dismissed under the first amendment’s right to freedom of speech. In the case of Bailey vs. Eminem, Bailey claimed defamation. Defamation is when someone publicly speaks about you in a negative, untrue sense. If what Eminem was saying was true, then it is not defamation. Bailey was not able to show that defamation had happened beyond a reasonable doubt (Rogers, 2012). In the case of Pahler vs. Slayer, a crime was committed. The claim was that the teenage boys involved followed the lyrics of the band Slayer, and used them to sacrifice their friend so that they could play music better. The band Slayer was not writing these lyrics to be followed as a manual. They did not contribute to the crime in any way (Slayer lawsuit thrown out, 2014).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
