Fifty years before the Bill of Rights, a German immigrant had his day in court. 

 In 1735, newspaper publisher John Peter Zenger was accused of writing unfavorably about the New York colonial government.  Zenger won his case, because his reporting – though politically unpopular – was true. 

The Zenger case laid the groundwork for the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of the press.
