Oregon town agrees to allow pro-life signs after ADF files lawsuit

City of Stayton agrees to court order that stops ordinance from being misused to squelch free speech

STAYTON, Ore. — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys secured a consent order Friday from a district court that requires the city of Stayton to allow a man to display pro-life signs on a public street corner.  The city agreed to the order after ADF attorneys representing Frederick “Caleb” Pearson filed suit when a city “advertising” ordinance was used to prevent him from holding pro-life signs that exposed the true nature of abortion.

Case Name:  Pearson v. City of Stayton
