Group battles airport limits on solicitors • Sunday January 19, 2003

Copley News Service, Jan. 14, 2003

LOS ANGELES The Hare Krishna organization filed suit in U.S. District Court yesterday seeking to bar the Los Angeles International Airport from enforcing a law limiting where and when groups can solicit donations.

The suit contends the law, which took effect Dec. 16, violates First Amendment free-speech rights. The city of Los Angeles, airport Manager Stephen Yee and Police Chief Bernard Wilson are named as defendants.

The law requires solicitors to apply for 30-day permits that specify when and where they can seek donations. Solicitors also are barred from singing, chanting, dancing and shouting or they can be subjected to a $500 fine.

No hearing date has been set on the request for a temporary restraining order. The International Society for Krishna Consciousness of California Inc., and one of its members, Emil Beca, are named as plaintiffs.
