SHARK wins Utah civil liberties case

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, December 2003:

PARK CITY, Utah–Conceding that an ordinance prohibiting
mobile video displays during the annual Sundance film festival and
the 2000 Winter Olympics may have infringed the First Amendment, the
Park City council on December 12 repealed parts of the ordinance that
were invoked in 2000 to block rolling protests by SHARK against the
“Command Performance Rodeo,” held as part of the Cultural Olympiad.
Park City also agreed to pay $2,500 to cover SHARK’s legal costs in
suing to overturn the ordinance.
SHARK founder Steve Hindi told ANIMAL PEOPLE that the outcome
sends a signal to other cities that may try to ban the SHARK video
