New First Amendment Ruling from 9th Circuit

The Ninth Circuit published an opinion holding that cities may not enact ordinances prohibiting leafleting on cars parked on city streets.  The Court reasoned that the prevention of litter and the protection of private property are not sufficiently signficant government interests to justify the restriction on speech.  The Court stated that if a vehicle owner does not wish to receive leaflets placed on the windshield, he or she may post a sign akin to a “No Solicitation” sign on the dashboard.
