ACLU, Maui County settle sign-waving lawsuit

By Associated Press

POSTED:



The American Civil Liberties Union and Maui County have reached a settlement in a lawsuit over rules against holding signs along public roadways.

The ACLU of Hawaii said today that as part of the settlement, Maui agrees to modify its rules prohibiting sign-waving within 50 feet of any traffic control signal, 20 feet of a pedestrian crosswalk or six feet of highway pavement.

The ACLU says the county threatened to enforce the ordinance against protesters in January. But it says county police violate the same laws by holding their own sign-waving events.

Maui County spokesman Rod Antone says details about how the ordinance will be changed aren't yet known because the issue must go before the county council.
