Court: City of Duluth violated court order by reimposing First Amendment ban

Free speech once again free at ‘Tour of Lights’

DULUTH, Minn. — People are once again free to peacefully share their faith at the “Bentleyville Tour of Lights” event in Duluth. A federal court ruled Wednesday that the city violated a court order when it reinstated a First Amendment ban at the event. The ban had again prevented people from peacefully sharing their faith at the public park where the event is being held, but the new court order clarifies that the injunction against the ban is still in place.

The city’s disregard of the original order prompted Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys to file an emergency motion last month that asked the court to enforce its injunction.
