Coronado v. Myers
Our clients were arrested for “preaching to a captive audience.” After realizing there is no such law, the officer issued a citation for interfering with an open business through obstruction and/or intimidation. The District Attorney realized that neither of those claims were valid and, instead, prosecuted our clients for failing to have a permit pursuant to a vague and little-known state regulation. After successfully defending our clients of criminal prosecution in state court, our federal case for unlawful arrest and false imprisonment is continuing. We are also seeking to have the state regulation be declared unconstitutional.
