The lawsuit, filed by Project Say Something, claims the city and police chief are telling the group when, where and how it can demonstrate.
FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) — An organization that has staged dozens of protests against a Confederate monument in north Alabama filed suit contending the city of Florence is trying to limit the demonstrations in violation of free-speech guarantees.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday by Project Say Something and its founder, Camille Bennett, claims the city and Police Chief Ron Tyler are trying to clamp down on the protests by telling the group when, where and how it can demonstrate against the monument, located at the Lauderdale County Courthouse.
Bennett said the organization, a nonprofit which she founded about eight years ago, has tried to work with the city, the TimesDaily today!
