Professor Mead Works with ACLU on Legal Challenge to RNC Protest Zones

Professor Joseph Mead was co-counsel on the successful challenge to the Republican National Convention protest zones. The case was brought by the ACLU of Ohio on behalf of Citizens For Trump, Organize Ohio, and the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless. After a federal judge declared the City’s restrictions to be unconstitutional, the parties agreed on new rules that respected the rights of protesters and the homeless. Elizabeth Bonham, a 2015 graduate of Cleveland-Marshall, also worked on the case as a staff attorney for the ACLU of Ohio. The case has received extensive national and local coverage.
