Court suspends city of Duluth’s First Amendment ban

City must allow people to share their faith at ‘Tour of Lights’ event

DULUTH, Minn. — A federal court issued an order Tuesday that prevents the city of Duluth from enforcing a First Amendment ban on people desiring to share their faith at a city park during the “Bentleyville Tour of Lights” event. Alliance Defense Fund attorneys filed suit against the ban in November after police told two men to leave the event last year based upon the objections of an event official who called their views “religious crap.”
