Simpsons Cartoon to be on trial by European Court of Human Rights
A Russian lawyer plans to take his case against 'The Simpsons' to the European Court of Human Rights
. Mrr Smykov wanted to have the cartoon series taken off the air in Russia, or at least shown at a later time, claiming it promoted drugs, violence and homosexuality. He also demanded money compensation from the TV channel saying the show had morally damaged his nine-year-old son.
But the Moscow City Court rejected his appeal and Smykov says he now plans to take the case to European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
