'Shock' Director To Test Boundaries Of Free SpeechFri May 09, 2008 @ 03:25PM PST

Is the trial against 57-year-old Los Angeles–based "shock" video director, Ira Isaacs, the next big ticket in Hollywood? Perhaps. The Huffington Post's Pellicano blogger Allison Hope Weiner has already marked her courtroom seat, and Radar Online is calling the coming Isaacs trial "the most extreme obscenity trial in U.S. history."
Isaacs' titles, including "Hollywood Scat Amateurs No. 7," "Laurie's Toilet Show" and "Gang Bang Horse" make "2 Girls 1 Cup" look positively tame. Or so we've been told.
The trial will test the legal force of the Department of Justice's Obscenity Prosecution Task Force as well as new Internet obscenity laws. Isaacs, who does business as Stolen Car Films and LA Media, is only the third person charged by the DOJ on these laws.
