busy day for the aclu
A post about the ACLU and two permits -- one an occupancy permit, and the other a parade permit. In one case, the ACLU is asking a court to decide whether a permit should have been issued when it wasn't. In the other case, they are questioning the need for a permit when the law is unclear, and may be unreasonable. A church was denied an occupancy permit by a borough in Pennsylvania, resulting in the filing of a lawsuit by the ACLU on behalf of the church. A suit was also filed today by the ACLU in Shrieveport, Louisiana, on behalf of a man who was fined for failure to have a parade permit when he picketed in front of a KMart. He was the only protestor.
