Lawsuit - City Ordinace
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A church group says in a federal lawsuit that an Alabama city is illegally restricting it and other religious groups from doing door-to-door solicitations.
The Birmingham News reports that the South Central Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is challenging the constitutionality of two Alabaster city ordinances.
The church says the ordinances bar it from doing door-to-door solicitations unless they first register and pay license fees.
Church officials say the lawsuit was filed after a member of the church's Summer Student Missionary Program was ticketed in June by an Alabaster police officer for selling books door-to-door without a city permit. The group suspended its program in Alabaster after the citation.
