Clark v. Community for Creative Non-Violence (1984)
CCNV obtained permits to erect a symbolic tent city in Lafayette Park. The permit however did not allow individuals to sleep in those tents. CCNV then filed suit against the park.
Is prohibiting camping in certain parks a violation of the 1st Amendment?
Sleeping in certain areas fall under the time place and manner defense and the court holds that government has the power to restrict speech based on time, place and manner.
