ADF considering appeal of ruling that keeps Pittsburgh censorship zones in place

ADF official comment
Published On: 3/6/2015

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Litigation Counsel Elissa Graves regarding a federal court’s decision Friday in Bruni v. City of Pittsburgh to keep the city’s censorship zone law in place and partially dismiss the lawsuit against it despite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down a similar law in Massachusetts last year:


“Americans, including those who are pro-life, have the freedom to speak with whomever they please on public sidewalks. As the U.S. Supreme Court noted just last year, this freedom has been a foundational element in American life since the nation began. Because of this, we are considering appeal of the court’s decision, which allows enforcement of Pittsburgh’s unconstitutional censorship zones to continue.”
