Blaming and Pointing (It'll happen)

Under federal law, when a public official acts using his official authority ("under color of law") and violates an individual's constitutional rights, that individual may sue the official for monetary damages. Hence, a public official who fails to recognize that the First Amendment protects even works of art does so at risk of financial liability.


  1. Does our fair city attorney Robin Upchurch knows this...
    Ive heard of some phantom list she has made up consisting of what art is allowed to sell in the Plaza and which isnt...
    I do believe that this federal law would cover such a list, no?

  2. I hear that Robin Upchuck likes Pickeled "HERRING"
