Showler v. Harper’s Magazine


General Photography

“An appeals court has ruled against family members of an Oklahoma National Guard member whose open casket was photographed by Harper’s Magazine. […] ‘While it could be argued that publication of [the photo] without prior authorization was in poor taste … it does not constitute an actionable claim under any of the theories advanced by plaintiffs,’ the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on March 23 in Showler v. Harper’s Magazine.” - story
