Overview

Summary

Fredric Baumann, a Christian, was arrested and jailed for distributing religious tracts on a public sidewalk outside the City of Cumming Fairgrounds in Cumming, Ga. Police claimed that Baumann violated the city's "parade ordinance," which requires parade and demonstration organizers to obtain a permit. After ADF attorneys filed a federal civil rights ordinance on behalf of Baumann, Cumming officials agreed to repeal the ordinance.
