Lebron v. National Railroad Passenger Corporation

A Second Appeal

The nation's highest court reversed the ruling in 1995 and sent Lebron's case back to the appeals court. The justices had left undecided whether Amtrak had committed any free speech violation. Ordered to study Lebron's First Amendment arguments, the appeals court again ruled against him in October of 1995. "Amtrak's historical refusal to accept political advertisements such as Lebron's on the Spectacular is a reasonable use of that forum that is neutral as to viewpoint," the appeals court ruled. The court of appeals denied a rehearing on 29 December 1995. Lebron again appealed to the Supreme Court, but it rejected his appeal on 27 May 1996.
