A free speech ban on overpass roadways in the City of Dallas ended this week when a U.S. District Court ruled it unconstitutional.

On Monday, Sept. 21, U.S. District Court Judge David Godbey ruled in favor of the grassroots Overpasses for America (OFA) and named litigant OFA Texas state leader Valerie Villarreal in a lawsuit the group filed last year. The judge awarded the $1.00 per plaintiff damages requested in the legal documents as “recognition of defendant’s violation” of the First Amendment” under City of Dallas ordinance #29244 of city code Chapter 28.

“The nominal damages award represents a legal determination that plaintiffs suffered a deprivation of constitutional rights,” the final consent judgment stated. In addition to the total of $2.00 in plaintiff damages, the city will pay approximately $25,000 in plantiffs’ attorneys’ fees. The loss meant the City of Dallas acknowledged its ban on overpass roadway protests was unconstitutional.

    Now go out and stop the importing of 10,000 immigrants. that ten thousand is said to be able to bring over there entire family once they are here. That means already figured out by government that we will be bringing in between 50 and 100 million Muslims. yes, we will become a Muslim nation overnight. They will have a voting block that will eliminate our Constitution and invoke Sharia Law.

    I am amazed that there is still a judge that will rule in the correct direction.
    On the subject matter that was displayed I couldn’t agree more. Where are our representatives and what are they doing while the people are telling them what they want? The signs say impeach Obama now. Are they listening? I think not. I say that ant politician who has the balls to ask people to vote for them after doing nothing but allowing our country to be raped by the M in charge should become an illegal immigrant.

    Hooray for free speech! But, 25 grand for a “cake walk”? Do people still wonder why there are so many jokes about lawyers and sharks?

      If you want to find a lawyer go to the government, there are hardly anything other than lawyers there. If you want to find a good lawyer you will have to check somewhere else.

        The government consists of lawyers that could not make a living in the real World. Worthless pieces of shit.
