Civil Liberties Defense Center was happy to represent Alley Valkyrie at no cost and contribute to the case against Lane County, who violated the constitutional rights of the local activist last year when it had her cited for trespassing following her refusal to leave a public plaza after officials closed it.  Eugene Municipal Court judge has ruled in agreement of the violation.

In her decision, Judge Karen Stenard said the county’s reason for ejecting protesters and shutting the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza — that the area had to be cleaned because human feces were smelled in the area — was too broad and did not pass the rigorous test required for government actions that restrict constitutional freedoms.
