INDICE DE GALERIAS
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A federal appeals court has found that the Minneapolis Park Board placed too many restrictions on a man trying to distribute free Bibles at the Twin Cities Pride Festival.
In a 2-1 decision, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday reversed a decision by U.S. District Judge Michael Davis.
Davis had ruled that the park board had made reasonable provisions for Brian Johnson to make the Bibles available at the festival.
Johnson's attorneys had sought an injunction to block the board's limits on Johnson's distribution, which would have confined him to distributing Bibles at a booth outside the festival.
The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/18QaoNe ) reports the appeals court found Johnson would face "a loss of First Amendment freedoms" because of the restrictions.
The case was sent back to Davis.
