On August 30, U.S. District Court Judge Denise Page Hood, a Clinton appointee, struck down a Dearborn, Michigan city ordinance that required a group to have insurance if it wished to leaflet on public property and to have public speakers in that area. Stand Up America Now v City of Dearborn, eastern district, 12-11471. Here is the 12-page opinion. The opinion would be equally applicable to petitioning. Thanks to Thomas Jones for the news.
