Consent Decree Allows Gospel Tracts At Street Festivals

In Price v, City of Fayetteville, North Carolina, (ED NC, Aug. 7, 2014), a North Carolina federal district court entered a consent decree enjoining the city from restricting distribution of religious literature at private festivals on public streets that are free open to the public.  This specifically includes the Dogwood Festival and the Independence Day Concert held in downtown Fayetteville-- venues at which last year police prevented plaintiffs Tom Price and William Legg  from distributing gospel tracts.
