Date of Decision
26 June 1972
Denied the petitioners' claim and reversed the decision of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, affirming the decision of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals that the Chicago ordinance banning non-labor demonstrations next to schools violated the Equal Protection Clauses of the First and Fourteenth Amendments.
The ruling extended protection of an individual's right to freedom of speech and assembly which the Court had previously affirmed by striking down state ordinances banning demonstrations in the vicinity of state capitols: Gregory v. City of Chicago (1969) and parks: Niemotko v. Maryland (1951).
