Judgment expected in denied rally permit case
A Republican Congressional candidate has sued Gov. Gavin Newsom after she was denied permits to protest in Sacramento in April, 2020, during the pandemic.
Christine Bish, running to represent Sacramento in Congress, and Sacramento Gun Club instructor Ron Givens, claimed their First Amendment rights to free speech, freedom of assembly and right to petition, the due process clause of the 14th Amendment and the California Constitution’s right to liberty were violated.
Givens claimed a California Highway Patrol officer told him that no protest permits were to be issued under Newsom’s pandemic orders.
