City of Los Angeles Must Pay NRA for 1st Amendment Violation

Keith G. Langer Oct. 2, 2020

The city passed an ordinance forbidding any company having or seeking city contracts to have any dealings with the NRA. A Federal judge rightly struck the ordinance down, as violating the First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and association.

San Francisco had tried similar posturing but also had the wisdom to cease when sued. LA has now been ordered to pay the NRA's legal fees; about $150,000.
