ACLU In Court Wednesday In Case Of Denver Residents Removed From Bush Event For Bumper Sticker
Group Appealing Federal Court Ruling Upholding Exclusion Based On Political Expression
DENVER - November 17 - The
American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Colorado will be in
court Wednesday, November 18, to present arguments in a lawsuit
challenging the exclusion of two Denver residents from an
open-to-the-public speech by President Bush in March 2005. The ACLU
lawsuit charges that Leslie Weise and Alex Young were ejected simply
because they arrived at the event in a car with the bumper sticker
reading "No More Blood For Oil." The U.S. District Court for the
District of Colorado dismissed the case in November 2008, and the ACLU
will argue that ruling should be reversed.
Oral arguments in an appeal of Weise v. Casper, a case challenging the exclusion of two Denver residents from a 2005 speech by President Bush.
