GOULART v. MEADOWS, 02-1962
Although plaintiffs' proposed use of a community center (for meetings of a geography club and a fiber arts club ) is afforded First Amendment protection, the county's exclusion of the plaintiffs' proposed uses does not violate the plaintiffs' right to free speech or to equal protection under the First or Fourteenth Amendments.
