Final Brief Filed in U.S. Supreme Court in Case on Petitioning at the Polls

On March 29, this reply brief was filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in Citizens for Police Accountability Political Committee v Browning, 09-861. The issue is whether Florida is violating the Constitution by letting exit pollsters station themselves within 25 feet of a polling place on election day, but refusing to let petitioners closer than 100 feet. Both groups only wish to talk to voters who are exiting the polling place.

The U.S. Supreme Court will probably decide whether to hear this case within the next three weeks. This reply brief is ten pages of text and is interesting reading. It is in response to the state’s March 19 brief, which is here.
