Hare Krishnas Cannot Solicit Donations at LAX
A ban on soliciting donations at Los Angeles International Airport does not tread on Hare Krishna members’ free speech rights, the 9th Circuit ruled Wednesday.
A city ordinance forbids the immediate solicitation of money at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), including the terminals, the parking lots, and adjacent sidewalks.
The law bans “the sale or offering for sale of any property upon the representation, express or implied, that the proceeds of such sale will be used for a charitable or religious purpose.”
