11. Check Collier-vs-City ofTacoma
In 1990 I ran for US Congress from the left against an entrenched cheapest means to getting name familiarity was through the use of yard signs. We put them in spite of a city of Tacoma ordinance that only allowed signs up for 60 days before and 30 days after an election on private property. The city came to people told them to get their signs off the lawn and out of the windows or face criminal legal penalties. We took the city to the Washington State Supreme Court and got the sign laws overturned in the State of Washington. It is one of the text cases dealing with election sign law. We won on the fact that political speech is protected above all other forms of speech. Realtors were allowed to keep their signs up on houses all year long. Either they had to take the signs down or we needed to be allowed to keep our up. If you want more information please contact was my email is Peace Mike Collier
