DALLAS, March 6 (UPI) -- An appellate court ruled an enforcement effort to prevent conspiracy theorists' selling materials in Dallas' Dealey Plaza must stop.
The Dallas County Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Robert Groden, a vendor and theorist on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, arrested in 2010 for selling merchandise in Dealey Plaza, the site of the shooting in 1963. The ruling comes before the 50th anniversary, and planned remembrances, of the assassination, WFAA-TV, Dallas/Ft. Worth, reported Wednesday.
"It's a matter of free speech. It's a First Amendment issue," said Groden after the decision. "The city wants us out of here. It didn't want anyone giving an alternative point of view about the Kennedy assassination."
