Redding’s limits on leafleting at library blocked

SF Chronicle – “A spat over outdoor literature tables during Constitution Week led city officials in Redding to restrict leafleting outside the public library, an action that united a diverse set of opponents – local Tea Party groups and the American Civil Liberties Union. Now a judge has issued a ruling that could break new ground on free speech in civic plazas. “The library is an area dedicated to the free exchange of ideas,” Judge Monica Marlow of Shasta County Superior Court said Wednesday in an injunction halting enforcement of the restrictions that took effect in April.”
