The article presents an analysis on whether the excellent book deal signed by Justice Clarence Thomas will affect the largest Television indecency case. The article states that Thomas might be out in the case because his publisher and Fox Television Stations are both owned by News Corp. His absence could be in favor of the Justice Department if the result of the indecency case against Playboy Entertainment Group will be the basis.
