Boardley v. US Dep't of the Interior, 09-5176

In a challenge to National Park Service regulations making it unlawful to engage in expressive activities within any national park unless a park official first issues a permit authorizing the activity, a partial grant of defendant's motion for summary judgment is reversed where the regulations in their current form were antithetical to the core First Amendment principle that restrictions on free speech in a public forum may be valid only if narrowly tailored.
