This week, the United States Supreme Court heard arguments in a case arising from local regulation of roadside signs, raising complicated first amendment issues.
National Public Radio’s Morning Edition carried coverage of the case as arguments were pending Monday:
Reed’s lawyer, David Cortman of the Alliance Defending Freedom, will tell the Supreme Court on Monday that the town of Gilbert [Arizona], by dividing regulations for noncommercial signs into categories — political, ideological and directional event signs — is regulating speech based on its content. And that, Cortman says, is prohibited by the Constitution.
