Judge Allows Christian Leaflets at Arab Festival

Ad Feedback

A federal judge has signed an order allowing Christian evangelists to distribute leaflets at a popular Arab-American Festival in Dearborn, Mich.
The city has been trying to keep Christians from passing out their materials on the sidewalks at the Dearborn Arab International Festival.

However, on Tuesday, Judge Paul Borman upheld a ruling by an appellate court that found such restrictions a violation of free-speech rights.

Last year, in a separate case, four Christian evangelists were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at the Muslim event. They were acquitted and are now suing the city.

This year's three-day festival is scheduled to begin on Friday.
