Court Upholds Brentwood Ban on Roadside Newspaper Sales

The U.S. Court of Appeals has upheld a Brentwood ban prohibiting the sale of The Contributor homeless newspaper to motorist from sidewalks. According to the Nashville Business Journal, the court found that the ban is not an unconstitutional prohibition on free speech, and found that vendors can sell the newspaper using other methods, including going door-to-door or selling to pedestrians.
