The actual lawsuit was thrown out by the Supreme Court over "the lack of
jurisdiction." It appears that since the spaceship, and it's occupants were
government property, they exceeded the territorial limits of the
jurisdiction of the US and what they crew members said and did were beyond
control of the US and the constitution. Technically, they could've read the
"Seven Dirty Words" and the most that could happen to them would be expelled
from the space proram. Yet, the only illegal activity that could've taken
place onboard the spaceship that would hold up in a military or civil court
was a mutiny, basically pirating from within. It appears that the word
"Ship" is covered no matter where it is located. So a spaceship 200,000
miles from earth can not be mutinied wthout punishment, yet you can swear
until you turn blue without repurcussion.
