Arrest for Nazi salute violated 1st Amendment, court says

Dec 16, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Appeals panel says the Santa Cruz council's ouster of a homeless activist over the protest gesture was 'viewpoint discrimination,' not a bid to maintain order.

The city of Santa Cruz violated the 1st Amendment rights of an advocate for the homeless when the mayor had him arrested for giving a Nazi salute at a City Council meeting, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
