When the Montgomery County Commission convenes next week in its monthly informal session, it will mark the first time the full commission has met with a ban on unlimited livestream broadcasts of its meetings in effect, the Leaf Chronicle reports. In the meantime, a lawsuit is ongoing, challenging whether Montgomery County's ban, enacted earlier this month, might be a violation of constitutional free speech and the First Amendment. The suit has been filed in U.S. District Court in Nashville.
