During Constitution Day activities in 2010, a dispute arose between a Redding library manager and a Constitutional advocate over free speech activities on library grounds. The dispute led the city to adopt a new policy restricting activities outside of the library—including the free distribution of the Constitution and other similar literature.
"This entire ordeal began on Constitution day, and it's the Constitution that has vindicated the public against these faulty laws," said PJI President, Brad Dacus. "Shouldn't libraries be in support of sharing ideas," Dacus questioned.
The City of Redding is not expected to appeal the case.
