Curfew on Door-to-Door Solicitation
Held Unconstitutional by Circuit Court
City’s claim that rule is “narrowly tailored”
to serve significant governmental interests is rejected
The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed a trial court and ruled that an ordinance that barred door-to-door solicitation after 6 p.m. is unconstitutional. After considering every justification advanced by the City of Englewood (OH), the Court said the law was not “narrowly tailored” to serve significant governmental interests. (Ohio Citizen Action v. City of Englewood, 6th Cir., No. 10-3265, 2/2/12.)
