9th Circuit: Hawaii's Regulation Of Commercial Beach Weddings Does Not Violate First Amendment
by Robert Thomas, InverseCondemnation
This just in: the Ninth Circuit has issued an opinion in Kaahumanu v. State of Hawaii Dep't of Land and Natural Resources, No. 10-15645 (June 6, 2012), the case challenging the State's regulation of commercial weddings on state beaches under the First Amendment. The court mostly upheld the regulations, but struck down the power of government officials to revoke a permit and modify it.
More, after a chance to digest the opinion.
