Professor Weinstein Co-Authors Article (with Brian Connolly) on Reed v. Town of Gilbert Case

An article critiquing  the Supreme Court’s June 2015 decision in Reed v. Town of Gilbert co-authored by Alan Weinstein and Brian Connolly, a Denver-based attorney/planner, has been published in 47 Urb. Law 569 (2015). In their article, titled “Sign Regulation After Reed: Suggestions for Coping With Legal Uncertainty,” Weinstein and Connolly discuss the first amendment questions left unanswered by Reed, including whether that decisions “on its face” rule for determining whether a sign regulation is content-based applies to regulations that distinguish between commercial and non-commercial signs or between on-site and off-site signs. The article also discusses the effect Reed may — or may not — have on other first amendment issues, including the “secondary effects” doctrine and “speaker-based” regulations.  The article concludes with suggestions for how local governments should revise their sign regulations to ensure compliance with Reed.
