First Amendment and Municipal Liability

The federal district court has found that a plaintiff's First Amendment rights were violated when she tried to distribute flyers outside an auditorium at which the former mayor of Providence was giving a speech.  However, the court found there were issues of fact as to which defendants were liable for the violation and denied plaintiff's summary judgment motion.  Plaintiff sued the City of Providence, the Chief of Police and two Providence police officers.
