FEDERAL JUDGE RULES Los Angeles City Council Broke U.S. Law in Censorship of The Public (READ RULING)

ZumaDogg.com – UNITED STATES/CALIFORNIA/FEDERAL/COURT: FEDERAL RULING (AUGUST 08, 2013) – Zuma Dogg vs Los Angeles City Council: “It is unconstitutional to restrict speakers from making personal attacks in City Council meetings; it chills speech critical of elected officials, which is speech at the heart of the First Amendment. In one of the largest cities in the world, it is to be expected that some inhabitants will sometimes use language that does not conform to conventions of civility and decorum, including offensive language and swear-words. As an elected official, a City Council member will be the subject of personal attacks in such language. It is asking much of City Council members, who have given themselves to public service, to tolerate profanities and personal attacks, but that is what is required by the First Amendment. While the City Council has a right to keep its meetings on topic and moving forward, it cannot sacrifice political speech to a formula of civility. Dogg “may be a gadfly to those with views contrary to [their] own, but First Amendment jurisprudence is clear that the way to oppose offensive speech is by more speech, not censorship, enforced silence or eviction from legitimately occupied public space.” Gathright v. City of 18 Portland, Or., 439 F.3d 573, 578 (9th Cir. 2006). The city that silences a critic will injure itself as much as it injures the critic, for the gadfly’s task is to stir into life the massive beast of the city, to “rouse each and every one of you, to persuade and reproach you all day long.” (‪#‎PLATO‬, Five Dialogues, Hackett, 23 2d Ed., Trans. G.M.A. Grube, 35 (Apology).) 24 The court GRANTS summary judgment to Plaintiffs on the as-applied challenge to the Rules of Decorum.”

NOT BLOGGERS=NEWS MEDIA QUOTES ON MR. DOGG: “Legend”/KABC: “Brain-seizing, Superstar, Icon”/LA Weekly: “Stunned and amazed. We’ve never seen anything like it. Treasure.”/LA Times: “Heroic”/AM 870: “Crusader”/L.A. Mayor Garcetti: “Malibu Celebrity”/Malibu Times (ZD’s PERSONAL favorite quote.)

Zuma Dogg vs City Council: This LONGTIME elected CA Democrat was convicted/sentenced for breaking the law, as councilmember; and is now a convicted criminal. We know why he was SO nervous, here, about ZD; who DID INDEED have the plugged pulled on the corrupt, on-going, agenda item he is addressing here. #SpecialEventFeeWaivers 
 
“Zuma Dogg fought the oppressive, L.A. Council meetings presided over by Garcetti, who banned video cameras. Mr. Dogg prevailed against Garcetti’s rules, any now any member of the public may record the meetings, thanks to him.” – LA Weekly
