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.

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
