NYC: Ya-Ya Network in First Amendment victory

The City of New York has reached an agreement in a lawsuit brought by the New York Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Ya-Ya Network, a youth advocacy group. Ya-Ya activists had been threatened with arrest for handing out flyers outside public schools advising students of their right to withhold personal information from military recruiters. The activists will have the right to distribute literature on sidewalks outside schools under the agreement. (Newsday, March 29)
