Signature Line

John Peter Zenger was a newspaper publisher in NY in the 1730s, who was charged with seditious libel for publishing satire and facts criticizing the Royal Governor. When he was found Not Guity by a jury (who were also threatened with imprisonment if they did not convict him), it helped to establish the legal principle that "The Truth is the Ultimate Defense."
