Rudy Giuliani: Mayor of New York (1999)

Civil Liberties Union Files Brief Supporting Brooklyn Museum In Controversy with Mayor Giuliani

According to news reports, the Mayor has said he would also cut off city financing to any other publicly supported cultural institution that mounts an exhibit that he considers an attack on religion.

But, as the civil liberties union points out in legal papers, such retaliation runs counter to the principles of the First Amendment. Both sides in the battle will enter court this Friday to present their arguments in the high-profile controversy.
