Court: Ordinance restricting day laborers' speech unconstitutional - CNN.comLos Angeles (CNN) -- The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down as unconstitutional an ordinance in a southern California town that prevented day laborers on public sidewalks from soliciting work from passing drivers.
"Because the ordinance is not narrowly tailored to achieve the city's goals, it is facially unconstitutional," the court said in a 9-2 decision.
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, MALDEF, called the decision "precedent-setting."
