Anti-Solicitation Law Upheld (Comite De Jornaleros Redondo Beach)

Comite De Jornaleros Redondo Beach (CA9) (here):

This appeal raises a First Amendment challenge to Redondo Beach Municipal Code § 3-7.1601, which prohibits the act of standing on a street or highway and soliciting employment, business, or contributions from the occupants of an automobile. We have previously upheld a virtually identical ordinance against a constitutional challenge. See ACORN v. City of Phoenix, 798 F.2d 1260, 1273 (9th Cir. 1986). We reach the same result here and hold that the Redondo Beach ordinance is a valid time, place, or manner restriction.  Accordingly, we reverse the contrary decision of the district court.
