Constitutionality of Transit Advertising Policy

Participated in an amicus brief (with other amici) filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Northeastern Pennsylvania Freethought Society v. County of Lackawanna Transit System. The case involved the advertising policy of the transit system (“COLTS”), which the brief argued was unreasonable, vague, imprecise, and amounted to an unconstitutional heckler’s veto. The brief noted that the COLTS policy could prohibit advertisements that news organizations increasingly rely on to reach the public. The brief urged the court to overturn a district court ruling upholding the constitutionality of the COLTS policy. [2018]
