The ACLU has recently filed a lawsuit against Kern County seeking to bar the county from installing web filters on the public library computers. Before the lawsuit, if a library had one computer, then the computer had no filter on it, but if the library in Kern County had more than one computer, then the computers would have the filter installed. The filter blocks adult content to browsers who are under the age of 18. The ACLU filed the lawsuit to protect the First Amendment rights of the minors who go to the libraries to use the computers.
