Supreme Court Rejects Appeal from Anti-Abortion Demonstrators

The Supreme Court yesterday, without comment, turned down an appeal claiming that a San Jose ordinance banning picketing near a doctor's private residence violated the free speech clause. The ordinance disallows demonstrations within 300 feet of targ eted private residences. The Court's ruling is consistent with previous rulings which allow the bans on picketing near private residences. In June the Court rejected a challenge to the FACE law, which places federal limits on protests near abortion-clin ics. In October, the Court let stand rulings in a Virginia case which stated that the FACE law does not infringe on expression or religion rights


TNT will televise the event at 10 p.m. on October 21, 1995.
